Biostatistical Analysis in Early Phase of Sepsis

Case Report
Experiments on random-bred albino mice showed that application of ?2ARs agonist (hexaprenaline sulfate, 1,5?g/kg, a single dose) and ?7nAChRs agonist (GTS-21, 15 mg/kg, a single dose) cause a significant decrease in themortality of mice from experimentalsepsis(i.p., E. coli O157:H7) when it is modeling 2 h after using these drugsdue toa decrease of the concentration of proinflammatory cytokines TNF-?, IL-1?, and IL-6 (implementation of thecholinergicanti-inflammatory pathway). The combined use of ?2ARs and ?7nAChR agonists determines their...
