Lo, Y. M. D. and Rainer, Timothy 2004. Plasma DNA as a noninvasive monitoring tool for trauma patients. In: Burtis, Carl A. and Muller, Mathias M. eds. Advances in critical care testing: the 2002 IFCC-Roche Diagnostics Award, Berlin: Springer, pp. 142-153. (10.1007/978-3-642-18480-2_17)

Post-traumatic organ failure is common following severe injury and is an important cause of mortality (1). There is much recent interest in the use of circulating cellfree DNA in the plasma for clinical diagnosis (2). We hypothesize that DNA may be liberated from body tissues into the plasma following trauma and that plasma DNA may be a potentially useful monitoring tool for trauma patients.
