Abstract

Recently, several studies about the role of natural killer (NK) cells in sepsis have been highlighted. In an earlier study, we characterized the abnormalities of circulating lymphocytes in 52 patients with septic shock during the first 28 days in the intensive care unit. Our results confirm and expand some previous reports. We found that patients who did not survive exhibited less NK cell (CD3-CD56⁺) depletion than survivors and that these NK cells expressed CD69⁺ and CD57⁺. These data demonstrate that NK cells are key participants in septic shock because patients who survived have more depletion and expressed less early activation and differentiation.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 March 2012.
All research outputs
#7,037,068
of 9,233,965 outputs
Outputs from Critical Care
#3,091
of 3,538 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#63,795
of 95,750 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Critical Care
#76
of 109 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,233,965 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,538 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 12.5. This one is in the 4th percentile – i.e., 4% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 95,750 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 109 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 2nd percentile – i.e., 2% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
