Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    IL-1β/IL-6/CRP and IL-18/ferritin: Distinct Inflammatory Programs in Infections

    http://journals.plos.org/plospathogens/article?id=10.1371/journal.ppat.1005973


    Abstract:

    The host inflammatory response against infections is characterized by the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and acute-phase proteins, driving both innate and adaptive arms of the immune response.

    Distinct patterns of circulating cytokines and acute-phase responses have proven indispensable for guiding the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases.

    This review discusses the profiles of acute-phase proteins and circulating cytokines encountered in viral and bacterial infections.

    We also propose a model in which the inflammatory response to viral (IL-18/ferritin) and bacterial (IL-6/CRP) infections presents with specific plasma patterns of immune biomarkers.
