A substantial alteration in metabolic homeostasis is commonly observed in severe critical illness. We hypothesized that metabolic profiles significantly differ between critically ill patients relative to their level of plasma mtDNA. Differential metabolic profiles during critical illness are associated with cell-free plasma ND1 mtDNA levels that are indicative... Read More | Comment
