    The role of pro-fibrogenic cytokines in the outcome of infections with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and the response to treatment with pegylated interferon-alpha (pegIFNα) and ribavirin remains unclear. To address this issue, we assessed hepatic fibrosis and plasma markers pertinent to T-cell...

    Background/Objectives:Earlier we reported an association between iron deficiency and overweight in Brazilian preschoolers. Here, we investigate whether this is the result of adipose-related inflammation.Subjects/Methods:Fasting serum C-reactive protein, α-1-acid glycoprotein (AGP), hepcidin,...

    Plasma triiodothyronine (fT3) is a strong predictor of adverse clinical outcomes in various clinical conditions. Since fT3 in patients with end-stage renal diseases (ESRD) is frequently reduced and is associated with inflammation and cardiovascular damage, we prospectively tested the hypothesis...

    Background. Inflammation plays a major role in both aging and chronic disease. Longitudinal studies in very old people can improve our understanding of these processes. We investigated blood levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra), and...

    Interleukin-5 is produced by a number of cell types, and is responsible for the maturation and release of eosinophils in the bone marrow. In humans, interleukin-5 is a very selective cytokine as a result of the restricted expression of the interleukin-5 receptor on eosinophils and basophils....
