Description

This is a multifaceted program evaluating the efficacy of resuscitation fluids and other pharmacological interventions in the treatment of trauma and hypovolemia due to hemorrhage. This program includes (1) studies of mechanisms associated with the hemodynamic, biochemical, hormonal, and immunological alterations associated with trauma and/or hemorrhage; (2) the influence of factors such as central nervous system trauma, dehydration, and oxygen radicals on the response to trauma, hemorrhage, and resuscitation efforts; and (3) the role of cytokines and growth factors, and proteolytic enzymes in mechanisms associated with trauma. In vivo studies employ a range of surgical, biochemical, and physiological techniques, while in vitro studies utilize cell and organ culture techniques.
