Monoclonal antibody to intercellular adherence molecule-1 (ICAM-1) was used to inhibit leukocyte adherence in two models of burn injury. The antibodies to ICAM-1 had significant effects in preserving microvascular blood flow in bum wounds, and in modulating the systemic response to major burn injury. These results suggest a central role for leukocytes in the pathophysiologic response to burn injury.
