Integrins Integrins are a widely expressed family of glycoprotein cell surface adhesion receptors and are all heterodimers. They consist of a and ß subunits; the a units vary in size between 120-180 kd and are non-covalently linked to the ß units that measure 90-110 kd [2]. Integrins appear to be the major receptors by which cells attach to extracellular matrices and some integrins also mediate important cell-cell interactions. More recent evidence suggests that these adhesion receptors also mediate a variety of intracellular signalling events.

A. Fowler Introduction Sepsis and the complications which arise following onset of the phenomenon in humans remain one of the most common and devastating problems encountered in critically ill patients. The incidence of sepsis in the United States has more than doubled over the last ten years affecting more than 400000 patients annually. Highly effective antimicrobial agents and vastly improved supportive management in modern intensive care units have failed to significantly reduce the estimated 40 to 50% mortality rate observed in patients with septic shock and the resulting multiple organ failure.
