Ascitic fluid y interferon concentrations and adenosine deaminase activity in tuberculous peritonitis

Abstract

The y interferon (,y-IFN) concentration and the adenosine deaminase (ADA) activity were evaluated in 30 patients with tuberculous peritonitis, 21 patients with ascites due to a malignant disorder, and 41 patients with cirrhosis. The y-IFN concentrations were significantly higher (p<0.0001) in tuberculous peritonitis patients (mean: 6-70 U/ml) than in the… (More)
