Tumor necrosis factor-alpha during continuous high-flux hemodialysis in sepsis with acute renal failure.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Suppressed ex vivo endotoxin (ET)-induced production of the proinflammatory cytokine, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), in isolated mononuclear cells (PBMCs) is associated with fatal outcome in severe sepsis. PBMCs from surviving patients, but not those from nonsurviving patients, recover their capacity to produce normal amounts of TNF… (More)
