|Title:||T-cell cytokine production and endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetic patients with nephropathy|
El Shamaa, A.
|Abstract:||This study assessed changes in serum levels of cytokines IFNgamma and IL-10 [biomarkers of inflammatory changes] and soluble biomarkers sICAM-1 and sE-selectin [biomarkers of endothelial dysfunction] in diabetic patients with and without nephropathy. IFNgamma and IL-10 were significantly elevated in patients with diabetic nephropathy [DN] and end-stage renal disease [ESRD] compared with controls and diabetic patients without DN. IFNgamma and IL-10 levels were significantly increased after haemodialysis. sICAM-1 and sE-selectin were significantly higher in diabetic, DN and ESRD groups compared with controls, and sICAM-1 but not sE-selectin was increased after haemodialysis|
