Macrophage polarization and MRSA infection in burned mice.


PMID 27596946

Abstract

Mortality associated with Staphylococcus aureus infection remains high during the sub-acute phase of burn injury. In this study, we aimed to improve antibacterial resistance of sub-acutely burned mice through macrophage polarization. Sepsis did not develop in mice at the sub-acute phase of 5% total body surface area (TBSA) burn after being infected with methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), and M1 macrophages (interleukin (IL)-10
