OBJECTIVE To evaluate the serum levels and diagnostic value of cytokines and acute phase proteins in patients with infective endocarditis (IE). PATIENTS AND METHODS Serum samples from 63 patients diagnosed with IE and 71 control patients were analysed for the following markers: interleukin-6 (IL6), tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin 1-beta (IL1beta), procalcitonin (PCT), lipopolysaccharide binding protein (LBP) and C-reactive protein (CRP). RESULTS Serum levels of IL6… CONTINUE READING
