Abstract

Forty-five burn patients underwent sequential assays for plasma acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate concentrations as well as plasma amino acid levels. Those patients who went on to develop multiple system organ failure were noted to have a decrease in their acetoacetate concentration with time, whereas there was no change in those patients who failed to develop multiple system organ failure. The plasma concentration of beta-hydroxybutyrate was not altered by multiple system organ failure. In addition, the plasma acetoacetate/beta-hydroxybutyrate ratio was found to be directly related to the plasma concentration of branched chain amino acids and inversely related to the concentration of aromatic amino acids.
