Infectiologie en réanimation

Infectiologie en reanimation-1

Pierre Charbonneau Michel Wolff 2013 L’infection est l’ennemi premier du réanimateur. Outre les infections graves admises en réanimation, les patients qui y sont hospitalisés sont ultrasensibles au risque infectieux nosocomial : manoeuvres invasives, immunosuppression, défi cits organiques complexes, âge parfois avancé. Tout concourt à faire de ces patients une cible privilégiée pour des microorganismes dont la pathogénicité n’est pas nécessairement […]

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Heat Shock Proteins in Infectious Disease

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Heat Shock Proteins in Infectious Disease-1

Edited by A. Graham Pockley M. Gabriella Santoro 2010 All cellular organisms maintain the ability to mount a heat shock response (HSR) when exposed to elevated temperatures. The HSR is a complex cellular response, although its major essence is the induction by heat shock of several cohorts of proteins, heat shock proteins (HSP) in uniquely large concentrations that […]
