Abstract

Cytokines are factors that are known to have both tumor-promoting and inhibitory effects on breast cancer growth. Different cytokines play an important role in controlling the immune system. This study was carried out to investigate the alterations in serum levels of proinflammatory cytokines (IL-1α, IL-6 and TNF-α) in breast cancer patients, and its relation with progression of this cancer. The current results revealed that there is significant elevation in median serum levels of IL-1α, IL-6 and TNF-α, P<0.001 in breast cancer patients, as compared with control groups, this elevation was significantly associated with advanced stage, P<0.001. These finding suggest that serum levels of IL-1α, IL-6 and TNF-α appears to be of some prognostic value in breast cancer.
