Examination of ADMA (Asymmetric-Dimethylarginine)-serum level and DDAH II (Dimethylarginine Dimethylaminohydrolase)- Polymorphism in patients with severe Sepsis and septic shock as prognostic value.

This study looks into ADMA as a good prognostic factor for sepsis. Further more the dependency of the ADMA level to the DDAH II polymorphisms is reviewed this study.
