This study characterizes the mechanisms of action of albumin in this condition. METHODS Systemic and splanchnic hemodynamics, plasma renin activity and plasma concentration of interleukin-6, serum concentration of nitric oxide and ascitic fluid levels of nitric oxide and interleukin-6 were assessed at diagnosis and resolution of infection in 12 patients with spontaneous… CONTINUE READING
