A team led by MGH investigators has identified a set of characteristics – including differences in gene expression – that may indicate which patients recovering from severe burns are at greatest risk for repeat infections. Predicting the risk of infection before it occurs would indicate which patients should receive preventive treatment and reduce the unnecessary use of antibiotics in those at low risk.
A team of MGH investigators has identified what may be a biomarker predicting the development of the dangerous systemic infection sepsis in patients with serious burns.
Existing mouse models do not appear to accurately reproduce the human genomic response to serious traumatic injury, including major burns.
Serious traumatic injuries, including major burns, set off a "genomic storm" in human immune cells, altering around 80 percent of the cells' normal gene expression patterns.
A team led by MGH scientists has developed a new microfluidic tool for quickly and accurately isolating neutrophils – the most abundant type of white blood cell – from small blood samples, an accomplishment that could provide information essential to better understanding the immune system's response to traumatic injury.

Join our clinical team as we tour the newly renovated inpatient intensive care unit in the Sumner M. Redstone Burn Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. The center’s largest expansion since it opened in 1974 has new state-of-the-art equipment that will help us provide the very best in burn care.
Learn about the Sumner M. Redstone Burn Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and how it was developed with the patient in mind. The new center features bacteria-controlled nursing units, several noise-reducing measures, a new physical and occupational therapy rehabilitation space, as well as a private family waiting area.
