Sepsis, sometimes called blood poisoning, is a potentially life-threatening complication of infections. It occurs when bacteria or other infectious agents enter the bloodstream. The fellow will evaluate how protein receptors on the surface of platelets interact with bacteria found in septic dogs. Information gained from this study will help scientists develop improved therapies for controlling the abnormal platelet function associated with these potentially life-threatening infections in dogs.
