Promoter variants in IL18 are associated with onset of depression in patients previously exposed to stressful-life events
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Depression is accompanied by an inflammatory reaction and activation of cell mediated immunity (CMI) and stressors may induce the cytokine network in humans. The proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-18 (IL-18) is less investigated in depression but highly relevant since it is produced by activated macrophages and expressed in the brain.
