      Skjeflo, Espen Waage; Sagatun, Caroline; Dybwik, Knut; Aam, Sturla; Urving, Sven Haakon; Nunn, Miles A.; Fure, Hilde; Lau, Corinna; Brekke, Ole Lars; Huber-Lang, Markus; Espevik, Terje; Barratt-Due, Andreas; Nielsen, Erik Waage; Mollnes, Tom Eirik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Introduction Sepsis is an exaggerated and dysfunctional immune response to infection. Activation of innate immunity recognition systems including complement and the Toll-like receptor family initiate this disproportionate ...
    • Phagocytosis of live and dead Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus in human whole blood is markedly reduced by combined inhibition of C5aR1 and CD14 

      Skjeflo, Espen Waage; Christiansen, Dorte; Landsem, Anne; Stenvik, Jørgen; Woodruff, T. M.; Espevik, Terje; Nielsen, Erik Waage; Mollnes, Tom Eirik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Background Sepsis is a dysregulated host response to infection. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of complement- and CD14 inhibition on phagocytosis of live and dead Gram-negative and Gram-positive ...
    • Staphylococcus aureus-induced complement activation promotes tissue factor-mediated coagulation 

      Skjeflo, Espen Waage; Christiansen, Dorte; Fure, Hilde; Ludviksen, Judith K; Woodruff, Trent M.; Espevik, Terje; Nielsen, Erik Waage; Brekke, Ole-Lars; Mollnes, Tom Eirik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background There is extensive cross‐talk between the complement system, the Toll‐like receptors (TLRs), and hemostasis. Consumptive coagulopathy is a hallmark of sepsis, and is often mediated through increased tissue ...
