Macrophage migration inhibitory factor levels correlate with fatal outcome in sepsis.

Abstract

Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a cytokine playing a critical role in the pathophysiology of experimental sepsis. The purpose of this study was to determine the levels of MIF and to compare those to interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels in predicting mortality among critically ill patients with sepsis. The levels of MIF and IL-6 were measured in 25… (More)
