Sažetak
Because of complex pathophysiology and severe consequences, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are an important medical problem. Pathophysiology of TBI includes local and systemic stress response, in which interleukin-8 (IL-8) is considered as a key mediator of neuroinflammation. However, prognostic relevance of IL-8 measurement in adult patients with severe TBI is not certain. Therefore, IL-8 was determined in blood samples from central venous and jugular bulb catheter and in cerebrospinal fluid of twenty patients with isolated TBI at admission to Intensive Care Unit. None of the patients had history of stroke, dementia, autoimmune diseases, acute infection or medication with anti-inflammatory drugs. Ten patients died due to traumatic brain injury, while the other ten recovered well. While there was no significant difference of IL-8 levels in cerebrospinal fluid between survivors and nonsurvivors, central venous plasma level of IL-8 was significantly lower in survivors (71.00 +/- 14.17 pg/ml), than in nonsurvivors (111.26 +/- 16.9 pg/ml). Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis revealed significant prognostic value for IL-8 in the blood as well as for the age of patients, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and Acute Physiologic and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE II). These findings suggest that the central venous plasma values of IL-8 at admission might be an early predictive marker in patients with severe TBI, comparative to standard clinical prognostic markers such as APACHE II and GCS.
