Features of cytokines production in various periods of hemorrhagic fever with a renal syndrome

Keywords: cytokines, hemorrhagic fever with a renal syndrome

The purpose of the research is to study the features of cytokines production in patients with hemorrhagic fever with a renal syndrome (HFRS). The examination involved 54 HFRS patients. Laboratory studies included determination of main cytokines concentration circulating in the blood – IL-1β, IL-2, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, TNFα, IFN-γ and the one of receptor antagonist IL-1β – Rа-IL-1β by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in the system of bideterminant antigen testing with the use of peroxidase as an indicator enzyme using standard sets («Cytokine», St. Petersburg) in conformity with the technique attached to the set. Features of the cytokine profile depending on HFRS period (oliguric, polyuric periods, reconvalescence) are established. In HFRS patients an increase in the levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, IL-6, IL-10, IFN-γ and RA-IL-1β) was observed in oligouric period; in polyuric period there was a decrease in the production of these cytokines. The most informative indicator of cytokine profile in HFRS patients was IL-10/IFN-γ index which reached its maximum value in oliguric period, it decreased progressively as infectious process reversed, but continued to remain above reference values in reconvalescence period.
