Myocardial Response in Preterm Fetal Sheep Exposed to Systemic Endotoxinaemia


Exposure of the fetus to antenatal inflammation can occur from chorioamnionitis, which may progress to a fetal inflammatory response syndrome (FIRS) and to fetal sepsis. We tested whether the fetal myocardium responded to systemic Gram-negative endotoxinaemia. We hypothesized that the myocardium would respond to inflammation by changes in hypoxia-inducible… (More)
