Postinfective Fatigue Syndrome Is Not Associated with Altered Cytokine Production - Source: Clinical Infectious Diseases, Sep 2007

  [ 404 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Ute Vollmer-Conna, et al. • • September 14, 2007

Peripheral blood specimens and clinical data were obtained over a 12-month period from subjects in the Dubbo Infection Outcomes Study to examine cytokine production in postinfective fatigue syndrome. [Cytokines are defined as "a group of proteins instrumental in the orchestration of the host immune responses."]

Ex vivo production of 8 cytokines was examined in 22 case patients and in 42 control subjects who recovered promptly. No significant differences were found.

Ongoing production of the cytokines examined does not play a role in postinfective fatigue syndrome.
