How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Background Complement activation is a central mechanism in systemic inflammation and remote organ dysfunction following major trauma. Data on temporal changes of complement activation early after injury is largely missing. We aimed to describe in detail the kinetics of complement activation in individual trauma patients from admission to 10 days af...
Background: Trauma patients have high concentrations of circulating extracellular vesicles (EVs) following injury, but the functional role of EVs in this setting is only partly deciphered. We aimed to describe in detail EV-associated procoagulant activity in individual trauma patients during the first 12 hours after injury in order to explore thei...
Background: HMGB1 is a mediator of systemic inflammation in sepsis and trauma, and a promising biomarker in many diseases. There is currently no standard operating procedure for pre-analytical handling of HMGB1 samples, despite that pre-analytical conditions account for a substantial part of the overall error rate in laboratory testing. We hypothe...
Objectives: The causal role of the prototype alarmin high mobility group box 1 protein in systemic inflammation and remote organ injury after trauma and shock is established in animal models but not in humans. Our aim was therefore to determine high mobility group box 1 protein concentration kinetics with high time resolution during the first hour...
Laparoscopic and open liver resection have not been compared in randomized trials. The aim of the current study was to compare the inflammatory response after laparoscopic and open resection of colorectal liver metastases (CLM) in a randomized controlled trial. This was a predefined exploratory substudy within the Oslo CoMet-study. Forty-five patie...
Our ultimate goal is to prevent multiple organ failure caused by systemic inflammation after trauma. To this end we search for associations between concentration time courses of damage associated molecular pattern molecules (DAMPs) thought to initiate systemic inflammation, and organ failure. Methods are observational studies in patients and experiments in a large-animal trauma model.
