Studies in twins have also provided arguments for ‘genetically programmed’ susceptibility to infection, when homozygous twins who have the same genome are compared with heterozygous twins who are genetically different. Such studies clearly demonstrate that, in case of infection of the first twin, the risk for the second one to be infected by the same pathogen was higher for homozygous pairs versus heterozygous pairs [21–23]. Estimates of genetic predisposition, independent of environmental effects, have been obtained also from adoptee studies.

Rationale for Genetics in Sepsis and Infectious Diseases The influence of genetic factors in determining susceptibility and resistance to severe infectious diseases has long been suspected. Numerous reports in animal models, ethnic groups, familial cases, twin and adoptee studies have definitively proved the importance of genetics in severe infections [10]. The use of animal models, which mimic human severe sepsis, is important in elucidating the molecular mechanisms of sepsis. Genetic factors differentiate inbred strains, and epigenetic factors elicit variations within a strain.
