The effect of immunosuppression on manifestations of sepsis in an animal model of cecal ligation and puncture.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The diagnosis of sepsis is difficult in immunocompromised patients owing to their modified response to infection. Our experiment in minipigs was designed to compare responses to sepsis between experimental groups of septic minipigs with and without immunosuppression. METHODS Minipigs with identical baseline parameters were randomized into 3… (More)
