Cytokine production by adherent & non-adherent mononuclear cells in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  [ 38 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Gupta S, Aggarwal S, See D, Starr A • www.ProHealth.com • January 9, 1997


It has been suggested that cytokines play a role in certain clinical
manifestations of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). In this
study adherent (monocytes) and non-adherent (lymphocytes)
mononuclear cells were stimulated in the presence or absence
of phytohemagglutinin (PHA) or lipopolysaccharide (LPS),
respectively, and supernatants were assayed for IL-6,
TNF-alpha, and IL-10 by ELISA. IL-6 was also measured at the
mRNA level by polymerase chain reaction. The levels of
spontaneously (unstimulated) produced TNF-alpha by
non-adherent lymphocytes and spontaneously produced IL-6 by
both adherent monocytes and non-adherent lymphocytes were
significantly increased as compared to simultaneously studied
matched controls. The abnormality of IL-6 was also observed at
mRNA level. In contrast, spontaneously produced IL-10 by both
adherent and non-adherent cells and by PHA-activated
non-adherent cells were decreased. This preliminary study
suggests that an aberrant production of cytokines in CFS may
play a role in the pathogenesis and in some of the clinical
manifestations of CFS.
