Abstract

Therapeutic progress has virtually eliminated death from primary shock and early infection following severe human burns (1). In contrast, recent statistics reveal the depressing fact that the mortality rate, after full thickness burns involving 50 % or more of the body surface, has not improved substantially during the last decade (2, 3). Thus, the interest in burn research has shifted to the problem of the “late mortality”, sepsis appearing as the most obvious cause of this phenomenon (4). However, the lack of resistance of the burned patient seems to indicate a “host problem” rather than one of an increased virulence of the invading micro-organisms (5).
