Disfunção cardíaca secundária a sepse: o que sabemos?
TLDR
The identification of myocardial changes can be used as a tool for the institution of adequate treatment and the establishment of a more accurate prognosis in humans and small animals.
Altered phagocyte function precedes death in polymicrobial sepsis
TLDR
The determinants of infectious disease and other infectious diseases are investigated in more detail in the second chapter of this monograph.
Cytokine Mediated Immunomodulatory Properties of Selected Sri Lankan Medicinal Plants
TLDR
Findings indicated that studied plant extracts are positive immunomodulators in all aspects of the study and a potential tolerance against immunosuppression.
Mise au point Immunomodulation et sepsis – Impact de l ’ agent pathogène Immunomodulation and sepsis – Impact of the microorganisms
Infection begins when micro-organisms overcome host barriers and multiply within host tissue. To contain infection, the host stages an inflammatory reaction to mobilize defence systems and kill the
Blood leucocyte signaling profiles and trypsinogen-3 in severe acute pancreatitis
TLDR
The water quality of the Mediterranean Sea has changed in recent years from being excellent to poor in recent centuries, particularly in the case of the Black Sea, where the water quality has changed dramatically in the last century.
Mechanisms of neutrophil recruitment in septic lung injury
TLDR
It is demonstrated that immunoneutralization with anti-CD44 reduce neutrophil activation and accumulation as well as edema formation and lung injury in sepsis, and may dig up the way for establishing more specific and effective treatments of sepsi.

TLDR
It is true that the underlying inflammatory reaction is vastly more complicated than the authors had thought, and it is unlikely that a magic bullet will be found soon, but by reexamining what they have learned and rethinking their assumptions, they can better understand how organ dysfunction develops and how to prevent it.

TLDR
While cytokines are generally viewed as a destructive development in the patient that generally leads to multiple organ dysfunction, cytokines also protect the body when localized and it will be necessary to study the positive effects of cytokines while also studying their role in causing SIRS.
Why sepsis trials fail.
TLDR
All the trials of new therapies for sepsis conducted to date have failed to show efficacy and, under the rigorous conditions of the double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, their uniformly negative results have provoked great disappointment.
A second large controlled clinical study of E5, a monoclonal antibody to endotoxin: results of a prospective, multicenter, randomized, controlled trial. The E5 Sepsis Study Group.
TLDR
In this study, E5 did not reduce mortality in nonshock patients with Gram-negative sepsis whether or not those patients also had organ failure, but E5did result in greater resolution of organ failure in patients with gram-negative Sepsis and E5 resulted in the prevention of adult respiratory distress syndrome and central nervous system organ failure.

TLDR
The cytokines have been identified as a group of mediators important in the pathogenesis of sepsis, because several studies have shown that higher levels are correlated with a worse outcome in patients, and in experimental animal models, inhibition of cytokines improves survival, and administration of exogenous, recombinant cytokines reproduces many of the pathophysiologic alterations observed in sePSis.
Efficacy and Safety of Monoclonal Antibody to Human Tumor Necrosis Factor α in Patients With Sepsis Syndrome: A Randomized, Controlled, Double-blind, Multicenter Clinical Trial
TLDR
There was no decrease in mortality between placebo and TNF-α MAb in all infused patients, and in septic shock patients who received T NF- α MAb, a significant reduction in mortality was present 3 days after infusion; however, although a trend toward reduced mortality continued at 28 days following treatment with TTFMAb, the difference in mortality among shock patients treated with placebo or TFB was not significant.
Inflammatory cytokines in the BAL of patients with ARDS. Persistent elevation over time predicts poor outcome.
TLDR
The findings indicate that an unfavorable outcome in ARDS is associated with an initial, exaggerated, pulmonary inflammatory response that persists unabated over time, and support a causal relationship between degree and duration of lung inflammation and progression of fibroproliferation in AR DS.
L-arginine: nitric oxide pathway in endotoxemia and human septic shock.
TLDR
This study demonstrated the activation of the L-arginine:nitric oxide pathway in human endotoxemic septic shock, suggesting that nitric oxide may be an important mediator of the hemodynamic disturbances in this pathophysiologic situation.
Mechanism of endotoxin desensitization: involvement of interleukin 10 and transforming growth factor beta
TLDR
In vitro induced LPS tolerance looks like the ex vivo LPS hyporesponsiveness of monocytes from septic patients with fatal outcome: downregulation of LPS-induced TNF-alpha and IL-10 production but not of IL-1RA secretion.
Multiple organ dysfunction score: a reliable descriptor of a complex clinical outcome.
TLDR
This multiple organ dysfunction score, constructed using simple physiologic measures of dysfunction in six organ systems, mirrors organ dysfunction as the intensivist sees it and correlates strongly with the ultimate risk of ICU mortality and hospital mortality.
