We have previously reported that in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), nonsurvivors have persistent elevation in pulmonary and circulating proinflammatory cytokine levels over time and a high rate of nosocomial infections antemortem. In these patients, none of the proven or suspected nosocomial infections caused a transient or sustained increase in plasma proinflammatory cytokine levels above preinfection values. We hypothesized that cytokines secreted by the host during ARDS may favor… CONTINUE READING
