Table 1 Brain tissue levels of total protein, glial fibrillary acidic protein, and neurofilament heavy chain in naive, sham-treated, and septic rats

From: Translational evidence for two distinct patterns of neuroaxonal injury in sepsis: a longitudinal, prospective translational study

Parameter Naive group (n = 4) Sham group (n = 11) Septic group (n = 14) p Value

Brain tissue GFAP levels, ng/g total protein 0.34 ± 0.11 0.27 ± 0.19 0.29 ± 0.21 >0.05
Brain tissue NfHSMI35 levels, ng/g total protein 0.8 ± 0.6 2.6 ± 2.2 1.8 ± 1.7 >0.05
