Biochemical and pharmacological properties of a cardiotoxic factor isolated from the blood serum of burned patients.

Blood serum of severely burned patients contains several substances which are not present in normal sera. One of these substances, a small protein of an approximate molecular weight of 12 to 14,000 daltons displayed a toxic action on the circulatory system. This cardiotoxic factor was obtained in a purified form by alcohol precipitation followed by gel filtration and carboxymethyl cellulose chromatography. The purified preparation seems to be a low molecular weight protein of about 8000 daltons. The biological effects of this substance consist essentially of alterations of the ECG pattern, indicating decreased cardiac output and ischaemia of the cardial muscle. The blood pressure decreases and respiratory function is also altered. The presence of such a toxic factor in sufficient concentration in the blood serum may explain the cardiovascular complications observed in some burned patients.[1]
