The In Vivo Lipolytic Effect of Salmonella typhimurium Endotoxin


The acute phase responses to infection and endotoxaemia include reductions in the circulating levels of Fe, Zn and Ca. Most responses are postulated to be mediated by the cytokines interleukin–1 (Il–1) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) which both are produced by monocytes and macrophages.
