Table 3 Serum cytokine concentrations in 41 women with perimenopausal depression, compared to those women without perimenopausal depression (n = 24)

From: The role of cytokines and hot flashes in perimenopausal depression

Cytokine Perimenopausal women with depression (n = 41) Perimenopausal women without depression (n = 24) P value, Mann-Whitney
TNFα 7.07 (1.79 to 18.10) 3.99 (3.01 to 16.50) 0.537, NS
IL-6 1.89 (0.23 to 4.33) 6.23 (0.95 to 22.10) 0.900, NS
IL-10 3.44 (1.08 to 12.00) 3.18 (1.31 to 12.90) 0.726, NS
  1. The results of cytokines are expressed as medians (10% to 90%). Unit of serum cytokine concentration is pg/ml.
  2. IL = interleukin; NS = not significant; TNF = tumor necrosis factor.
