Abstract:

The bacterial factor, especially endotoxin, if at all, will play a significantly smaller role in hypovalemic shock than has been assumed in the past. This does not mean, however, that bacterial factors are not essential in septic shock. It should also be mentioned that many authors have employed endotoxin in the laboratory to simulate shock. This should not be interpreted as meaning that endotoxin plays a major role in the initiation of irreversible shock. In these experiments, a specific toxicity could not be demonstrated for homogenates prepared from the intestinal walls of rabbits in AMS shock. The material was injected into both normal and RES-blocked mice.
