Statins for Acutely Injured Lungs From Sepsis

The objective is to assess the efficacy and safety of oral rosuvastatin in patients with sepsis-induced Acute Lung Injury (ALI). The hypothesis of this study is that Rosuvastatin therapy w...

The purpose of this study is to assess the relationship between midkine level and ACE-Ang II induced endothelial injury in sepsis.

The Biomarker and Cardiac Function in Sepsis

The development and severity of sepsis induced myocardial dysfunction can be monitored from the serum biomarker.

Biological Markers to Identify Early Sepsis and Acute Lung Injury

There are no clear markers to identify sepsis and acute lung injury at early stage in clinical settings which would result in improved survival of the patients. In collaboration with the r...

A Project to Improve the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Myocardial Injury Associated to Non Cardiac Surgery

Major adverse cardiovascular events are the leading cause of perioperative morbimortality in non-cardiac surgery. Perioperative myocardial infarction is usually asymptomatic, with a mortal...

Role of M2 Macrophages in Sepsis-Induced Acute Kidney Injury.

Sepsis is a major cause of acute kidney injury (AKI), with high rates of morbidity and mortality. M2 macrophages have been shown to play important roles in the secretion of anti-inflammatory and tissu...

An experimental study of the protective effect of simvastatin on sepsis-induced myocardial depression in rats.

Milk fat globule-epidermal growth factor-factor VIII attenuates sepsis-induced acute kidney injury.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is most commonly caused by sepsis in critically ill patients, and it is associated with high morbidity and mortality. The pathophysiology of sepsis-induced AKI is generally a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Generally, restoration of blood supply to heart tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. Reperfusion can be induced to treat ischemia. Methods include chemical dissolution of an occluding thrombus, administration of vasodilator drugs, angioplasty, catheterization, and artery bypass graft surgery. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.

Adverse functional, metabolic, or structural changes in ischemic tissues resulting from the restoration of blood flow to the tissue (REPERFUSION), including swelling; HEMORRHAGE; NECROSIS; and damage from FREE RADICALS. The most common instance is MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.

Damage to the MYOCARDIUM resulting from MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION (restoration of blood flow to ischemic areas of the HEART.) Reperfusion takes place when there is spontaneous thrombolysis, THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY, collateral flow from other coronary vascular beds, or reversal of vasospasm.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.
