Overview

ZincZinc is a micronutrient which is essential for human growth, development, and immune function. Zinc deficiency impairs overall immune function and resistance to infection and zinc depletion may impact on oxidative stress, inflammatory responses and mitochondrial function during sepsis. We are investigating the effect of different zinc environments on cells exposed to conditions mimicking sepsis and also undertaking a study in patients with sepsis on the intensive care unit.
