  Purpose
The primary aim of the study is to demonstrate that mitochondrial dysfunction occurs in both skeletal muscle and circulating platelets of severely septic and septic shock ICU-admitted patients. Secondary aims are to clarify the pathogenesis and the clinical relevance of mitochondrial damage during sepsis.

Condition

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mitochondrial respiratory chain enzyme activity [ Time Frame: On day one and seven from admission to ICU ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
muscle tissue, platelets, plasma

Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: October 2007
Study Completion Date: August 2012
Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
The primary aim of the study is to demonstrate that mitochondrial dysfunction occurs in both skeletal muscle and circulating platelets of severely septic and septic shock ICU-admitted patients, as compared to otherwise healthy surgical ones. In order to better clarify the pathogenesis of mitochondrial dysfunction during sepsis, cardiogenic shock patients (suffering from systemic hypoperfusion) will act as additional controls. Markers of oxidative stress will be measured in tissue samples from septic patients. The clinical relevance of mitochondrial dysfunction during sepsis will be assessed in terms of both skeletal muscle and platelet function.
