Intentional overdose with insulin: prognostic factors and toxicokinetic/toxicodynamic profiles

Introduction Prognostic factors in intentional insulin self-poisoning and the significance of plasma insulin levels are unclear. We therefore conducted this study to investigate prognostic factors in insulin poisoning, in relation to the value of plasma insulin concentration. Methods We conducted a prospective study, and used logistic regression to explore prognostic factors and...

Hyperglycaemia and apoptosis of microglial cells in human septic shock

Introduction The effect of hyperglycaemia on the brain cells of septic shock patients is unknown. The objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between hyperglycaemia and apoptosis in the brains of septic shock patients. Methods In a prospective study of 17 patients who died from septic shock, hippocampal tissue was assessed for neuronal ischaemia, neuronal and...
