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.
