Abstract

These studies provide exciting prospects for the future treatment of gram-negative infections. The anti-endotoxin activity of lipid X, a monosaccharide precursor of lipid A, may be a prototypic compound for agents that can block the toxic effects of endotoxin that is being actively released. In contrast, monophosphoryl lipid A, a disaccharide derivative of… (More)
