Objective: To assess the magnitude and direction of associations of depression with C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-1, and IL-6 in community and clinical samples. Methods: Systematic review of articles published between January 1967 and January 2008 in the PubMed and PsycINFO electronic databases was performed. Effect sizes were calculated as stat d and meta-analyzed, using random-effects models. Results: Each inflammatory marker was positively associated with depression; CRP, d = 0… Expand
Interleukin-6, C-reactive protein and interleukin-10 after antidepressant treatment in people with depression: a meta-analysis
TLDR
There may be a normalization of overactive inflammatory processes following antidepressant treatment, according to a meta-analysis of studies which reported circulating levels of inflammatory markers before and after antidepressant treatment for people with depression. Expand
Association of Genes for Proinflammatory Cytokines and Depression
Objectives. To study the association between proinflammatory cytokines and depression. Materials and methods. The: IL-1β C-511T and TNF-α G-308A gene polymorphisms were studied in patients withExpand
Depression in type 2 diabetes: A systematic review and meta-analysis of blood inflammatory markers
TLDR
Depression in T2DM was associated with systemic inflammation and lower peripheral blood BDNF concentrations, and inconsistency between studies suggests the need to explore further population heterogeneity and pathophysiological elements. Expand
Associations of number and severity of depressive episodes with C-reactive protein and Interleukin-6.
TLDR
Severity of depression is correlated with elevated CRP but not with IL-6, and it is possible that immune dysregulation is not generally present in depression, but might be restricted to particular subgroups of depressed patients. Expand
CRP, IL-6 and depression: a systematic review and meta-analysis of longitudinal studies.
TLDR
The hypothesis that there is a causal pathway from inflammation to depression is supported, with a robust effect which remains significant after adjustment for age and a wide range of factors associated with risk for depression. Expand
Association between C-reactive protein and depression: modulated by gender and mediated by body weight
TLDR
It is concluded that CRP remained significantly associated with depression in a dose-response fashion among men but women after being adjusted for body weight, and normal body weight explained a substantial part of the relationship between CRP and depression among women. Expand
Cumulative meta-analysis of interleukins 6 and 1 beta , tumour necrosis factor alpha and C-reactive protein in patients with major depressive disorder
Cumulative meta-analyses are used to evaluate the extent to which further studies are needed to confirm or refute a hypothesis. We used this approach to assess observational evidence on systemicExpand
Mild depressive symptoms are associated with elevated C-reactive protein and proinflammatory cytokine levels during early to midgestation: a prospective pilot study.
TLDR
These pilot data suggest that depressive symptoms may be associated with inflammatory markers during early to-midgestation, and the association between depressive symptoms at 7-10 weeks of gestation and increased IL-6 levels at 16-20 Weeks of gestation approached statistical significance. Expand
A meta-analysis of differences in IL-6 and IL-10 between people with and without depression: Exploring the causes of heterogeneity
TLDR
The data highlight that comorbidity and behavioral aspects of depression need to be measured and controlled in future prospective and experimental research testing the inflammatory hypothesis of depression. Expand
C-reactive protein, interleukin-6, soluble tumor necrosis factor α receptor 2 and incident clinical depression.
TLDR
Blood levels of CRP, IL-6 and TNFα-R2 were not associated with incident depression over a follow-up of 6-18 years, and no associations with depression or antidepressant use were observed in the prospective analysis. Expand

Relationship Between Depression and C-Reactive Protein in a Screening Population
TLDR
Depressive symptoms are only weakly correlated with CRP, and the relationship between depression and clinical coronary disease is unlikely to be explained through direct effects on CRP levels, but may be mediated by BMI. Expand
The Association Between C-Reactive Protein Levels and Depression: Results from the Northern Finland 1966 Birth Cohort Study
TLDR
The hypothesis that an activation of systemic inflammatory processes may contribute to the pathophysiology of severe depression in men is supported, as well as the findings on diagnostic/treatment strategies concerning severe and, especially recurrent, depression inMen. Expand
The association between major depression and levels of soluble intercellular adhesion molecule 1, interleukin-6, and C-reactive protein in patients with recent acute coronary syndromes.
TLDR
Results suggest chronic endothelial activation among depressed patients after acute coronary syndromes, and further research is needed to determine whether or not higher levels of sICAM-1 may identify a subgroup of depressed patients at particularly high risk for cardiac events among patients with established coronary artery disease or among those without previous coronary arteries disease.

Inflammatory markers in late-life depression: results from a population-based study.
TLDR
A high plasma level of IL-6, but not CRP, is associated with an increased prevalence of major depression in older people, independent of age, chronic diseases, cognitive functioning and anti-depressants. Expand
Relation of C-reactive protein to stroke, cognitive disorders, and depression in the general population: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that high concentrations of CRP are associated with increased risk of stroke and cognitive impairment and the association between CRP and depression should be studied prospectively. Expand
Indicators of immune activation in major depression
TLDR
The correlations between cytokines and acute phase proteins studied point to a significant role of elevated IL-6 secretion in the induction of Type I AGP microheterogeneity changes that are characteristic of some inflammatory conditions. Expand
Association Between Depression and Elevated C-Reactive Protein
TLDR
A recent history of major depressive episode is strongly associated with elevated CRP in men aged 17 to 39, and this group, low-grade systemic inflammation could represent a mechanism linking depression to cardiovascular risk. Expand
Plasma Concentrations of Interleukin-1β, Interleukin-6, Soluble Interleukin-2 Receptor and Tumor Necrosis Factor α of Depressed Patients in Japan
TLDR
It is suggested that the plasma sIL-2R concentration is associated with mood state, and that the Plasma TNF-α concentration is increased after pharmacotherapy in Japanese depressed patients. Expand
Inflammatory markers and depressed mood in older persons: results from the health, aging and body composition study
TLDR
The association between depressed mood and serum level of IL-6 was significantly stronger in men than in women, suggesting that depressed mood is causing and/or caused by systemic inflammation. Expand

TLDR
Higher levels of depressive symptoms are associated with higher levels of CRP, but this association may largely be attributable to obesity or triglycerides. Expand
