Blood serum levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin 1beta (IL-1beta) and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) were measured by ELISA in patients with stable and unstable angina. Levels of cytokines and sICAM-1 were elevated in patients with stable and were even higher in patients with unstable angina. Among patients with stable angina those with more severe symptoms had higher serum activity of TNF-alpha and IL-1beta. Increased expression of sICAM-1 was… CONTINUE READING
