One, as yet unemployed, approach to investigating immunology in depression is the assessment of the cytokine production by leucocytes, which would allow the determination of immune response under standardized conditions. Thus we measured the production of mitogen-induced cytokines (IL-1 beta, IL-2, IL-6, IL-10, interferon-gamma) and sIL-2R in a whole blood assay, and serum protein levels such as C-reactive protein (CRP), haptoglobin (Hp) and alpha 2-macroglobulin (alpha 2 M) in a longitudinal 6… CONTINUE READING
