4G/5G Polymorphism of Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 Gene and Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation in Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.
Verified September 2010 by Hallym University Medical Center.

Data on 4G/5G polymorphism of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) gene are limited in Asian patients with sepsis. Therefore, the investigators aim to prospectively investigate the incidence of 4G/5G polymorphism and its relationship with disseminated intravascluar coagulatin in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock.
