Host immune response in sepsis due to ventilator-associated pneumonia: How is it different?

Current evidence regarding potentially different host response mechanisms in sepsis according to the type of initiating infection is sporadic. It is possible that alterations in cell populations, variations in effector molecules, and the degree of apoptosis differ between sepsis caused by ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and non-VAP sepsis. VAP is one of the most common infections and leading causes of sepsis in the intensive care unit, and mortality remains high. A better understanding of the unique pathophysiologic features of VAP is needed in order to develop interventions that target those specific pathways. © 2009 BioMed Central Ltd.

Drosophila immune priming against Pseudomonas aeruginosa is short-lasting and depends on cellular and humoral immunity Apidianakis, Yiorgos; Christofi, T. (2013)Immune responses are traditionally divided into the innate and the adaptive arm, both of which are present in vertebrates, while only the innate arm is found in invertebrates. Immune priming experiments in Drosophila ...
