Thermal trauma is associated with cardiac myocyte apoptosis in vivo. To determine whether cardiac myocyte apoptosis could be secondary to burn-induced cytokines or inflammatory mediators, we investigated the effects of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and burn plasma on a murine cardiac myocyte cell line and primary culture myocytes. HL-1 cells were… CONTINUE READING
