But when duty calls in the voice of Barrayar's Emperor Gregor, Miles, Gregor's youngest Imperial Auditor (a special high-level troubleshooter) has no choice but to answer. Waiting on Graf Station are diplomatic snarls, tangled loyalties, old friends, new enemies, racial tensions, lies and deceptions, mysterious disappearances, and a lethal secret with wider consequences than even Miles anticipates: a race with time for life against death in horrifying new forms. A rich Komarran merchant fleet has been impounded at Graf Station, in distant Quaddiespace, after a bloody incident on the station docks involving a security officer from the convoy's Barrayaran military escort. Lord Miles Vorkosigan of Barrayar and his wife, Lady Ekaterin, have other things on their minds, such as getting home in time to attend the long-awaited births of their first children. The downside of being a troubleshooter comes when trouble starts shooting back. . .

|The Role of ST2 in the Development of Systemic Immunosuppression after Heart Surgery Immune Modulation after Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Operation. Книга по Требованию Tina N. |
Although ST2 plays an important role in TH2 effector functions, the protein' s part in immune modulation after CABG has not been studied yet. This book attempts an insight into immune modulation after CABG operation and an explanation of the role of ST2 in this process. This effect may play an important role in development of infectious post-surgical complications, which lead to increased suffering and costs as well as prolonged hospital stay. Coronary artery bypass graft operation (CABG) is a common surgical procedure in Austria and all over the world. Cardiopulmonary Bypass is known to effect a generalized endogenous immune reaction similar to that described in sepsis. The production of IL-10 and the involvement of TH2-type lymphocytes seem to be important factors in the development of immune suppression.
