Background Vitreal interleukin (IL)-1beta (IL-1β), IL-6, IL-8, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and nitric oxide (NO) levels have previously been determined in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). However, at present there is no cohort study linking serum levels of NO and many inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α, IL-1β, soluble IL-2 receptor (sIL-2R), IL-6 and IL-8 to the grade of the microvascular complications.Purpose To determine the relation between the stages of DR… CONTINUE READING
