In relation to the occurrence of a severe inflammatory response, as discussed earlier, it can be seen that pro-inflammatory cytokines lead to activation of mononuclear and endothelial cells, which, in turn, can also produce cytokines. Activated mononuclear and endothelial cells will express tissue factor, the main initiator of the coagulation cascade. At the same time, impairment of the physiological anticoagulant mechanism by the down-regulation of endothelial bound proteins and the alteration of biological function within endothelial cells can lead to an insufficient counterbalance in favour of intravascular fibrin formation, which may, ultimately, contribute to organ failure.
