Özet

Over the past few years, the central role of cytokines in the amplification of the immune response has been reported and several studies have examined the relationship between the plasma level of individual lymphokines during renal allograft rejection. The aim of the present investigation was to study simultaneously IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, and soluble CD23. Analysis of results has allowed both the prognostic value and any possible interrelationships between the measured cytokines to be determined.
