We sought to investigate the association of CD14 genotype with the risk of mortality after burn, and we also attempted to evaluate whether CD14-159 C/T polymorphism affects the kinetics and extent of CD14 expression as well as its release, and TNF-alpha expression in burned patients. The study involved 64 patients in Chinese Han population incurring burns covering more than 30% of the total body surface area. CD14 polymorphism was determined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and subsequent… CONTINUE READING
