MANIFESTATIONS OF ENDOTOXINS

Visto: 837
Gram-negative bacilli and cocci release endotoxins that activate a series of inflammatory mediators. They activate immune response cells and produce a procoagulant state, causing damage to the endothelium and increasing the basal levels of procalcitonin. Finally, it leads to a immune response that benefits a state of septic shock, which is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality.
