OBJECTIVE To evaluate the kinin system components and selected cytokines in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with neuropsychiatric lupus (NPL). METHODS We studied 29 women with active NPL and 29 healthy women matched to patients for age. Low (LKg) and high molecular weight kininogen (HKg) and cytokine concentrations [interleukin 1beta (IL-1beta), IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, and tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a)] were determined by ELISA. The activities of tissue kallikrein, plasma… CONTINUE READING
