Abstract Share this page

The main aim of the study was to evaluate levels of cytokines IL-1ra, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, IL-17, TNF-alfa, TGB-beta1 and IFN-gamma in 30 patients with relapsing remitting (RRMS) compared to 30 secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) in a peripheral blood sample. Statistical analysis showed significant higher levels of IL-17 and INF-gamma, which are cytokines with pro-inflammatory properties, and lower levels of TGF-beta1, a molecule with immunosuppressant activity, in RRMS compared to SPMS. These results underline the existence of a different cytokines dysregulation in RRMS compared to SPMS phases with higher pro-inflammatory activity in RRMS.
