Quantification of functional and inactivated alpha 2-macroglobulin in sepsis.

Abstract

Alpha 2-macroglobulin (alpha 2 M) in vitro inhibits numerous proteinases that are generated during inflammatory reactions and therefore, probably plays an important role in diseases such as sepsis. To monitor the state of alpha 2 M in sepsis, we developed novel assays for functional and inactive alpha 2M. Functional alpha 2M in plasma was measured by… (More)
