Dear Members and Friends of ESS,

We hereby inform you that the Executive Committee of the European Shock Society has just issued a Support Statement to the nation of Ukraine that is currently being invaded by the Russian Federation forces (https://www.europeanshocksociety.org/).

It is a position of the ESS president and the ESS executive committee that our society should not remain voiceless in this tragic moment of the modern European history. Countless anti-war rallies around Europe attest to the gravity of the situation. We especially respect courageous Russian protesters within the Russian Federation.

We sincerely hope that you, as our member (or supporter of) ESS, agree with the issued statement. If that is the case, please kindly consider by supporting/disseminating this initiative in the following ways:

- Retweet/like the ESS tweet: https://twitter.com/EUShockSociety/status/1497505297748971523

We count on and thank you for your support!

The ESS President and ESS Executive Committee

About the Journal, SHOCK

SHOCK®: Injury, Inflammation, and Sepsis: Laboratory and Clinical Approaches includes studies of novel therapeutic approaches, such as immunomodulation, gene therapy, nutrition, and others. The mission of the Journal is to foster and promote multidisciplinary studies, both experimental and clinical in nature, that critically examine the etiology, mechanisms, and novel therapeutics of shock-related pathophysiological conditions. Its purpose is to excel as a vehicle for timely publication in the areas of basic and clinical studies of shock, trauma, sepsis, inflammation, ischemia, and related pathobiological states, with particular emphasis on the biologic mechanisms that determine the response to such injury. Making such information available will ultimately facilitate improved care of the traumatized or septic individual.
