Incorporation of [2-14C]glycine was used to estimate serum protein synthesis in four groups of rats. These were the control (group C); 20% body surface burn (group B); 20% burn, seeded with Pseudomonas aeruginosa (group BI); and burned-infected treated topically with mafenide (alpha-amino-p-toluenesulfonamide) acetate (group BIS), a treatment which controls P, aeruginosa burn-wound infection in humans. On the 6th day postburn the relative specific activities of all fractions were increased in… CONTINUE READING
