The possible role of Interleukin 6 (IL-6) and tumour necrosis factor (TNF) in the regulation of the acute phase response to injury was studied in thirteen subjects undergoing elective surgery or suffering from multiple accidental injuries. The temporal changes in the circulating concentrations of these cytokines were related to the circulating acute phase protein concentrations (C-reactive protein and alpha 1 antichymotrypsin), white cell count, blood loss and duration of surgery.
