Brief Summary:
Septic shock is a frequent pathology responsible for over 30000 deaths/year in France. Its outcome has not been improved despite the knowledge on inflammatory processes; a reason for these lack of results may lay on the lack of data on the precise dynamics of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cascades and their consequences. We intend to achieve accurate monitoring of the inflammatory process on a small group of non-immunocompromised patients. Our goal is to obtain quality data, repeated over time, by limiting the technical variability.

Condition or disease
Immunocompetent Patient on Septic Shock

Detailed Description:
The aim is to obtain precise data on the dynamics of cytokines, oxydative stress and hormonal response on immunocompetent adults during septic shock.
