AIMS In order to gain more insight into the pathogenesis of dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathies (DCM and HCM, respectively), we investigated the roles of certain cytokines that regulate apoptosis. METHODS AND RESULTS ELISA tests, performed to determine the plasma concentrations of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), the soluble Fas (sFas), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and the soluble IL-6 receptor (sIL-6R), revealed that DCM patients exhibit elevated concentrations of TNF-alpha, sFas, IL… CONTINUE READING
