    Surg 133: 1200 -1205.

         

    Sepsis appears to have a better prognosis
    in women than in men.
    The survival advantage of women may be related
    to their higher levels of anti-inflammatory mediators
    such as IL-10 (interleukin).
    (The relative proportions of pro-inflammatory
    and anti-inflammatory mediators may be an important
    therapeutic target).

           

    Are
    testosterone antagonists beneficial ?
