Introduction: Liver failure associated with LPS translocation represents a major risk to develop SIRS and sepsis after PH. The inflammatory response to LPS is dependent on binding of LPS/LBP complex to TLR4. Serum LBP was recently discovered as a candidate biomarker for the diagnosis of sepsis.[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
