Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) is the main cause of acute renal failure in children. The high percentage of patients who develop long-term sequelae constitutes an important medical concern. The identification of parameters that correlate with the degree of renal failure may be useful to plan the best treatment soon after hospitalization. Here, we investigated the functional state of neutrophils (PMN) from HUS patients on admission, before dialysis and/or transfusion, in relation to the… CONTINUE READING
