OBJECTIVE: To evaluate plasma levels of interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha in newborn infants immediately before and after 2 hours of mechanical ventilation. STUDY DESIGN: Term and late preterm neonates with no history of mechanical ventilation and/or ventilatory support were studied prospectively. Exclusion criteria were congenital malformations, congenital infections, use of nitric oxide, resuscitation with positive-pressure ventilation, and any procedure in the delivery room or neonatal intensive care unit that resulted in tracheal intubation. Blood samples for IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, and TNF-alpha levels were collected before intubation and mechanical ventilation and 2 hours later. RESULTS: Nineteen newborn infants with gestational age 35.8 +/- 1.9 weeks and birth weight 2280 +/- 370 g were included. Pro-inflammatory cytokines increased: IL-8 (2.5-fold), IL-1beta (7.5-fold), and TNF-alpha (10-fold), and the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 decreased by 90%. Although median IL-6 levels were similar between before and after ventilation, IL-6 increased in 89.4% of infants. CONCLUSIONS: A short period of mechanical ventilation promotes an imbalance of plasma levels of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. The systemic alteration of cytokines in response to mechanical ventilation may lead to ventilator-induced lung injury.
