Table 3 The level of ATP in sepsis

From: Bench-to-bedside review: Sepsis - from the redox point of view

Subjects Results Reference
Critically ill septic patients and healthy subjects undergoing elective surgery ATP (nmol/mg dry weight) in skeletal muscle biopsies:
Controls (8): 12.5 (9.7 to 13.7)
Survivors (12):15.8 (12.1 to 18.6)
Non-survivors (9): 7.6 (6.6 to 10.0) (P < 0.001)
[21]
Human umbilical vein endothelial cells incubated with healthy or septic sera ATP (nmol/L) in the cells exposed to the serum of:
Controls: 13.5 ± 1.9
Septic shock patients: 6.7 ± 1.2 (P < 0.01)
[76]
Murine model of endotoxaemia (LPS-induced) ATP (μmol/g wet weight) in liver:
Controls: 3.51 ± 0.21
Endotoxaemic: 3.00 ± 0.13 (P < 0.05)
[122]
  1. LPS, lipopolysaccharide.
