Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Anthony Bonavia's work focuses on the mechanisms of innate immune dysfunction caused by septic shock and associated acute kidney injury. Both of these diseases result in very high systemic levels of resistin, a pro-inflammatory cytokine impairing chemotaxis, reactive oxygen species production and bacterial killing by neutrophils. By using cell-based and animal models, Dr. Bonavia investigates whether resistin is responsible for immunosuppression in these disease states.

The translational implications of his research are to aid better understanding of whether cytokine adsorption therapy may have a role in mitigating the secondary infectious complications that develop in critically ill patients following sepsis and acute kidney injury.
