The current comparative investigation analyses markers of inflammation and apoptosis in peripheral blood of intensive care unit (ICU) patients with postoperative/posttraumatic SIRS (systemic inflammatory response syndrome), sepsis, severe sepsis, or septic shock. Inflammatory markers (C-reactive protein [CRP], cytokines, metalloproteinases [MMPs]) and soluble FAS-Ligand (sCD178) were determined in plasma, and apoptosis-relevant antigens such as active caspase-3, Bcl-2, and sCD178 were… CONTINUE READING
