Abstract: The systemic inflammatory response to infection (sepsis) involves widespread organ dysfunction, including changes in immune modulation, cardiovascular derangements, and neural activation. Two neuropeptide/receptor systems, nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) which acts at the non-classical opioid receptor NOP and urotensin-II (U-II) which acts at the urotensin receptor (UT), have been implicated in neural, immune, and cardiovascular system function. In this study, we make measurements of these peptides in critically ill patients.
