Cell Specific Gene Expression Pattern in Severe Trauma

Trauma patients' experience both monocyte and T cell dysfunctions during the development of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) as well as a severe T cell depletion. We examine gene expression patterns in isolated cell populations from patients of severe trauma.

Impact/Significance

Patient outcomes after trauma depend critically on the regulation of immune and inflammatory responses

Cell specific assays enable understanding of body’s systematic reactions to injury and inflammation
