This study aimed at assessing the role of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the control of pleural effusion (PE) and survival in patients with primary lung adenocarcinoma. The concentrations of the 3 cytokines were measured in PE from 79 lung adenocarcinoma patients with malignant pleural effusion (MPE) and 23 patients with tuberculosis. Data were correlated with the efficacy of MPE control and patient survival. The… CONTINUE READING
