Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and tumor necrosis factor receptor I and II (TNFRI and TNFRII) were studied in 24 burn patients who had a total burn surface area (TBSA) of 50.2 +/- 20.4%. Immediately after the injury, both the TNFRI and TNFRII levels correlated significantly with TBSA (r = 0.7344, P < 0.0001; r = 0.6074, P = 0.0012). The TNFRI and TNFRII levels immediately after the injury were significantly higher in the 11 patients who later died of their burns than in the 13 patients… CONTINUE READING
