Traumatic injuries, such as burn, are often complicated by ethanol intoxication at the time of injury. This leads to a myriad of complications and post-burn pathologies exacerbated by aberrant immune responses. Recent findings suggest that immune cell dysfunction in the gastrointestinal system is particularly important in deleterious outcomes associated with burn injuries. In particular, intoxication at the time of burn injury leads to compromised intestinal T cell responses, which can diminish intestinal immunity and promote bacterial translocation, allowing for increased secondary infections in the injured host and assoc...

ERG (ETS-related gene) is a member of the ETS (Erythroblast-transformation specific) family of transcription factors abundantly present in vascular endothelial cells. Recent studies demonstrate that ERG has important roles in blood vessel stability and angiogenesis. However, it is unclear how ERG is potentially involved in microvascular barrier functions and permeability. A wide variety of diseases and clinical conditions including trauma-hemorrhagic shock and burn injury are associated with microvascular dysfunctions, which causes excessive microvascular permeability, tissue edema and eventually, multiple organ dysfunctio...
