Lactate as a Potential Biomarker of Sepsis in a Rat Cecal Ligation and Puncture Model
Histological examination (a) hematoxylin and eosin staining in major organs. Representative photographs are shown (original magnification ×20). (b) Histology injury scores of major organs. Pathology scores were evaluated as previously described in Materials and Methods. Lac: blood lactate; L group: group with Lac lower than 1.64 mmol/L at 24 hours after CLP (); M group: group with Lac equal to or more than 1.64 mmol/L at 24 hours after CLP (). versus L group.
