Early prediction of late onset sepsis in multi trauma patients by analysis of neutrophil activation

K. Groeneveld, B. L. Warren, A. Serafin, L. Koenderman & L. P. H. Leenen
Problem: Systemic activation of the innate immune system attracts functional neutrophils into damaged tissues. Dysfunctional neutrophils stay behind in the circulation. This causes a paralyzed innate immune system and increased susceptibility to late onset sepsis. Method: In this prospective, observational[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
