This clinical study compared the expression of circulating proinflammatory (tumor necrosis factor-alpha [TNF-alpha] and interleukin-6) and anti-inflammatory (interleukin-10) cytokines and soluble apoptosis mediators (Fas/Fas ligand) between patients with stable chronic heart failure and depressive symptoms (as estimated by the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale) (n = 15) and those without these symptoms (n = 20). Patients with depressive symptoms exhibited significantly higher levels of TNF… CONTINUE READING
