BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Antiinflammatory cytokine (interleukin [IL]-1ra) and proinflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor [TNF]- alpha and IL-6) appear to play important roles in the pathophysiology of liver disease. In this study, the authors attempt to identify the roles of IL-1ra, IL-6, and TNF-alpha at different stages in postoperative biliary atresia (POBA) patients. METHODS Serum concentrations of IL-1ra, IL-6, and TNF-alpha were measured in 34 POBA patients and 25 healthy controls using… CONTINUE READING
