Serum cytokines such as interleukin 1β (IL-1β), interferon γ (IFN-γ), and tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) were measured in 40 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In the 40 patients studied, serum IL-1β was detected in 5 patients, IFN-γ in 10 patients, and TNFα in 20 patients. The IL-1β-positive group showed increased values of activity indices compared to the IL-1β-negative group. Values of serum IFN-γ correlated well with the number of peripheral blood lymphocytes and CD3+ cells and with… CONTINUE READING
