Cerebral microdialysis of interleukin (IL)-1ß and IL-6: extraction efficiency and production in the acute phase after severe traumatic brain injury in rats


As a research tool, cerebral microdialysis might be a useful technique in monitoring the release of cytokines into the extracellular fluid (ECF) following traumatic brain injury (TBI). We established extraction efficiency of Interleukin(IL)-1ß and Interleukin(IL)-6 by an in vitro microdialysis-perfusion system, followed by in vivo determination of the… (More)
