Sixty trauma patients were followed serially and divided into three groups: those with an uneventful recovery (n = 17), those with recovery after major sepsis (n = 27) and those who died (n = 16). The ability of peripheral blood monocytes to express the antigen HLA-DR was measured and compared to the results from 77… CONTINUE READING
