Research overview:
Recently we have established the quantitative assay for measuring cytokine mRNA expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. By using this method, we have the following plans: 1) to clarify the cytokine networks during operation and severe shock, such as hemorrhagic shock or septic shock, and 2) to clarify whether the drugs, such as anesthetic agents, steroid, and protease inhibitor, can inhibit cytokine production. These studies would provide useful information for the control of cytokine production during operation and severe shock.
