We assessed serum fibronectin levels during septic shock and modification of the levels by intravenous fibronectin infusion. Male rats subjected to cecal ligation and puncture received intravenously, either fibronectin in saline or saline only, 18-20 hours after the cecal ligation. The cecum was then excised. Fibronectin was assessed by electroimmunoassay and RES function by organ localization of gelatinized labeled colloid. Serum fibronectin concentration increased after the cecal ligation.
