Research Interests

Dr. Wu has been working on the cardiovascular diseases field since 1986. After he earned his Ph.D. degree, his research is more focusing on the pathogenesis and possible therapy of sepsis/septic shock. His ongoing researches are to investigate the effect of perivascular adipose tissue in the regulation of vascular tone and to examine old drugs new use in the sepsis animals. Recently, he extends his sepsis/septic shock research to Chinese Medicine. He wishes to have breakthrough findings both in pathogenesis and therapy from the view of Chinese Medicine.

Research Activities & Accomplishments

Dr. Wu is the first to show that (1) selective inhibitors of inducible nitric oxide synthase have beneficial effects on animals with sepsis-induced multiple organ dysfunction, (2) abnormal activation of K+-channels contributes to vascular hyporeactivity to vasoconstrictors in septic shock, and (3) selective 2-agonists reduce mortality rate in animals with sepsis. Although he has been studying sepsis topic since 1991, he feels that the best treatment of sepsis is to keep your health as good as possible every day. Preventive medicine is the best therapy of sepsis.
