The relative amounts of different pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines released at the site of infection by bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells may influence the presentation of tuberculosis. To investigate this hypothesis the in situ release by BAL cells of the following cytokines was measured and correlated with the chest X-ray findings of 43 patients with pulmonary tuberculosis: interleukin (IL)-8, macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha (MIP-1alpha), IL-6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF… CONTINUE READING
