BACKGROUND Interleukin (IL)-19, IL-20, and IL-22, three novel cytokines in the IL-10 family, have recently been discovered. The biological functions and clinical implications of these cytokines are not clear. We aimed to analyze if serum levels of these cytokines were altered in inflammatory responses of postoperative cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and investigate the molecular mechanism involved in cytokine induction. METHODS Twenty-five patients undergoing elective aortic-coronary bypass… CONTINUE READING
