Title:
Detrimental role of CC chemokine receptor 4 in murine polymicrobial sepsis. 
Abstract:
CC chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4) and its two ligands, CCL17 and CCL22, are critically involved in different immune processes. In models of lipopolysaccharide-induced shock, CCR4-deficient (CCR4(-/-)) mice showed improved survival rates associated with attenuated proinflammatory cytokine release. Using CCR4(-/-) mice with a C57BL/6 background, this study describes for the first time the role of CCR4 in a murine model of polymicrobial abdominal sepsis, the colon ascendens stent peritonitis (CASP).
