Project: Endotoxemia and gram-nagative sepsis: fundamental research to identify new mediators and new therapeutic targets

project duration
01-JAN-07 – 31-DEC-10
Infection with Gram negative bacteria kills a thousand people per day in the EU or the USA. The cell wall components of the bacteria, LPS, are responsible for this. We investigate new molecules that play a role in this process and focus on matrix metalloproteinases and interferons.
