  •  
    Septic illnesses found to be associated with suppression of TSH centrally in the HPA axis. The cytokines found to be elevated were IL-1beta, TNF-alpha, and IL-6.

Maternal Immune Activation Alters Fetal Brain Development through Interleukin-6 - 0 views

  •  
    this study, though in mice, should strike fear in all parents.  This study found that the inflammatory biomarker IL-6 was critical in the development of autism and schizophrenia in the mice offspring.  Neuro development was altered by inflammation exposure during preganancy.  This was from a single injection of IL-6!  This in light of recent studies that show that the flu vaccine and other vaccines increase IL-6 production in pregnant mothers.  So, why did ACOG promote flu vaccines in pregnancy again?

Inflammatory responses to trivalent influenza virus ... [Vaccine. 2011] - PubMed - NCBI - 0 views

    This article's conclusion fits the definition of insane.

    This article found that the flu vaccine in pregnant women found significant increased CRP, TNF-alpha, and IL-6 inflammatory biomarkers.  It is well recognized the impact of inflammation on health and in this case the developing baby.   For example, preeclampsia and preterm birth are inflammatory conditions.  Yet, ACOG has made recommmendations for all pregnant women to get the flu vaccine?!?!

    Here is their conclusion: "However, further research is needed to confirm that the mild inflammatory response elicited by vaccination is benign in pregnancy".  Take home, you are being studied to see the effects of the flu vaccine on you, if you are pregnant, and your developing child.  And who decides what "mild" is anyways.  If you develop preeclampsia and delivery early, where is the "mild" in that?

CIRCULATING INFLAMMATORY MARKERS IN POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND ... - 0 views

  •  
    It is well known that obesity increases CRP.  However, in this meta-analysis, CRP elevation in women with PCOS was found to be independent from obesity and as they concluded: "...chronic low-grade inflammation that may underpin the pathogenesis of this disorder".

  •  
    In this study, in addition to Estradiol, IL-6 was followed via salivary testing.

    This study found that post-exercise IL-6 elevation reduced energy availability from fat stores.

Low Grade Chronic Inflammation in Women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome - 0 views

  •  
    Women with PCOS have associated increased inflammation.  This origin is primarily via adipose tissue and associate adipocytokines (TNF-alpha, and IL-6).  CRP elevation, as found in this study, is associated with increased CVD.

Estradiol and inflammatory markers in Older Men - 0 views

  •  
    In this study, estradiol is associate with increased IL-6 in elderly men. No correlation was seen with TNFalpha, and CRP.

    high aromatase activity and conversion of testosterone to estrogen conversion plays a role in lupus and RA.  Inflammatory cytokines are shown to increase aromatase activity.

  •  
    increased testosterone to estrogen conversion, in part, stimulated by inflammatory cytokines: TNF, and IL-6.  They propose aromatase inhibition to decrease testosterone to estrogen conversion.  This study looked at individuals with HIV.

Sex hormones influence on the immune system: basic and clinical aspects in autoimmunity - 0 views

  •  
    high conversion of testosterone to estrogen conversion in men is from increased aromatase activity.  Inflammatory cytokines, such as IL-6, TNF-alpha, has been shown to increase aromatase activity and at the same time increase IL-6 and other inflammatory cytokines is the result of increased aromatase activity.

Estradiol and Inflammatory Markers in Older Men - 0 views

  •  
    Estradiol found to be associate, though weakly, with IL-6 in men.  This provides a link between estradiol production in men and inflammation.

Reduction of Inflammatory Cytokine Concentrations and Improvement of Endothelial Functi... - 0 views

  •  
    adipose tissue releases inflammatory markers (cytokines IL-6, TNF-alpha, V-CAM-1, ICAM-1, and P-selectin). Associated endovascular disfunction and eventually cardiovascular disease.  A direct link between obesity induced inflammation and endovascular dysfunction.  Weight loss in these obese women reduced secretion of the associated inflammatory cytokines and thus decreased vascular dysfunction.

  •  
    weight loss resulted in reduction in IL-6 and leptin.  The reduction of IL-6 reflects a decrease in inflammation. The reduction in leptin reflects an improved leptin sensitivity.
