Interleukins 6 and 8 as mediators of acute phase response in acute myocardial infarction.

PMID:  9294994     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The present study provides evidence that interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8 are the main endogenous mediators of acute phase response in patients with myocardial infarction. This conclusion was supported by the observation of a strict relation between IL-6 elevation and the extent of myocardial tissue damage and rise in body temperature.
