Cytokine storm of a different flavor: the different cytokine signature of SARS-CoV2 the cause of COVID-19 from the original SARS outbreak.
J Glob Antimicrob Resist
We present a case series of three patients with COVID-19 who had a cytokine panel which revealed elevation of interleukin-6 (IL-6), but normal levels of interleukin-10 (IL-10), interferon-gamma (INF-γ) and interleukin-8 (IL-8) in contrast to the cytokine signature described in Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). We also documented evidence of a compromised T-cell IFN-gamma response in two of these patients.
