Clinical Relevance of the Reverse Lipopolysaccharide Transport Pathway in Patients With Acute Peritonitis

2019-10-21 12:45:40 | BioPortfolio


When there is infection in the intra-abdominal area, bacteria secrete toxins that are absorbed by the peritoneum. These toxins then bind to lipoproteins (which carry cholesterol in the blood) and are eliminated by the liver. Phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) is a protein that facilitates the binding of bacterial toxins to lipoproteins and thus their elimination.

The objective of this study is to study the relationship between PLTP and the elimination of bacterial toxins in humans. A better understanding of the elimination of these toxins will lead to a better understanding of the disease. The ultimate objective is to improve the management of intra-abdominal infections.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.

INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.

The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.

Techniques for using whole blood samples collected on filter paper for a variety of clinical laboratory tests.

A form of PERITONITIS seen in patients with TUBERCULOSIS, characterized by lesion either as a miliary form or as a pelvic mass on the peritoneal surfaces. Most patients have ASCITES, abdominal swelling, ABDOMINAL PAIN, and other systemic symptoms such as FEVER; WEIGHT LOSS; and ANEMIA.
