The relationship between indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase activity and post-stroke cognitive impairment
TLDR
Data suggest an inflammatory response characterized by IDO activation may be relevant to the development of PSCI, and the K/T ratio may be a clinically important biomarker.
Neuropathology of Post-stroke Depression: Possible Role of Inflammatory Molecules and Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase
TLDR
Higher mean KYN/TRP ratios were demonstrated in stroke patients with depressive symptoms, suggesting that both mechanisms may play an etiological role in PSD.
Kynurenine and depressive symptoms in a poststroke population
TLDR
Peripheral kynurenine/tryptophan ratios were not associated with depressive symptoms in a poststroke population, however, in exploratory analyses a proinflammatory bias was identified specifically in patients with mild depressive symptoms and associated with poststroke fatigue, suggesting an avenue for future research.
The immunometabolic role of indoleamine 2 3-dioxygenase in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease: immune homeostatic mechanisms in the artery wall.
TLDR
Evidence from basic and clinical research showing that IDO is a major regulatory enzyme involved in the maintenance of immunohomeostasis in the vascular wall is summarized, as well as current knowledge about promising targets for the development of new anti-atherosclerotic drugs.
The Relationship Between Markers of Oxidative Stress and Depressive Symptoms in Coronary Artery Disease Patients
TLDR
Low concentrations of 8-ISO, a late-stage marker of oxidative damage to lipids, predicted greater depressive symptom severity measured by the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale, and lipid peroxidation may be an important correlate of depressive symptoms in CAD and should be further explored.

TLDR
The association between inflammatory markers and depressive symptoms in chronic dialysis patients was not mediated by TRP degradation along the kynurenine (KYN) pathway.

IDO and interferon-α-induced depressive symptoms: a shift in hypothesis from tryptophan depletion to neurotoxicity
TLDR
A role for IDO activity in the pathophysiology of IFN-α-induced depressive symptoms is supported, through its induction of neurotoxic KYN metabolites.
KYNURENINE METABOLITES AND INFLAMMATION MARKERS IN DEPRESSED PATIENTS TREATED WITH FLUOXETINE OR COUNSELLING
TLDR
It is concluded that depression scores are largely independent of inflammatory status, but kynurenine metabolism may be related to the degree of depression after fluoxetine treatment.
Indoleamine 2,3‐dioxygenase activity associates with cardiovascular risk factors: The Health 2000 study
TLDR
It is concluded that IDO is a sensitive marker of atherosclerosis – or the inflammatory response associated with it – but does not have an independent role in the pathogenesis of this disease.
Bariatric Surgery Cannot Prevent Tryptophan Depletion Due to Chronic Immune Activation in Morbidly Obese Patients
TLDR
Tryptophan depletion in morbidly obese patients is due to chronic immune activation and persists in spite of significant weight reduction following bariatric surgery, which might thereby be responsible for diminished serotonin functions, leading to unchanged satiety dysregulation and a reward-deficiency-syndrome.

Cytokine Regulation of Tryptophan Metabolism in the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) Axis: Implications for Protective and Toxic Consequences in Neuroendocrine Regulation
TLDR
The results indicate that cytokines such as IFN-γ and IL-10 are able to regulate IDO expression in cells of hypothalamic and pituitary origin, and implies that IL- 10 has a putative neuroprotective role in the HPA axis.

TLDR
Higher circulating levels of IL-6, CRP, and fibrinogen are independently associated with lower Vo(2 max) in asymptomatic men.
