ABSTRACT High mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) mediates inflammation. We investigated the role of serum HMGB1 in 54 patients with hematological malignancies with and without systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). There was no difference between group1 (complete remission of hematological disease: n = 13) and 2 (no remission:n = 16) in serum HMGB1 levels. However, those of group 3 (complicated with SIRS: n = 25) were significantly higher (vs. group 1: p < 0.001 and vs. group 2: p=0.008, respectively). Seventeen patients in group 3 also developed DIC and received recombinant human thrombomodulin (rhTM). Thirteen of those with SIRS improved and serum HMGB1 levels significantly decreased (p = 0.047). Seven patients in group 3 who died within 28 days of SIRS onset had significantly higher serum HMGB1 levels than the survivors (p = 0.016). The anti-HMGB1 properties of rhTM might be useful therapy if serum HMGB1 is associated with the development of SIRS in the presence of hematological malignancies.
