The Evaluation of Plasma and Leukocytic IL-37 Expression in Early Inflammation in Patients with Acute ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction after PCI

Table 2

Plasma IL-37, IL-18, and IL-18BP expression decreased in 48 h after PCI procedure.

IL-37 (pg/mL)82.8 ± 14.79*82.2 ± 9.28*84.4 ± 13.35*120.6 ± 2.67

Plasma IL-37, IL-18, and IL-18BP from healthy volunteers and patients at different time point were qualified by Elisa kit. Lower expression of both IL-37, IL-18, and IL-18BP was in patients compared to those in healthy volunteers (). No difference of change in all plasma cytokines was expressed at different time point in the patients with ASTEMI after PCI.
