The aim of this project is to investigate endotoxin-neutralizing mechanisms in human whole blood. One focus is the influence of the anticoagulation on the effect of endotoxins and on endotoxin-neutralizing factors in whole blood. Furthermore, Host Defense Peptides will be isolated from human whole blood and their influence on the activity of endotoxins will be investigated.
