  • Najwa Sh. Ahmed


Aim of the current study is to investigate correlation proinflammatory cytokines (Interleukin 6, 8, 10, and TNF α) with Chronic Lymphocyte Leukemia. In this study, serum was collected from (100) sample, a representative of 80 samples of chronic lymphocyte leukemia who were newly diagnosed by the consultant medical staff at the National Center of Hematology and 20 healthy sample on the other hand. IL-6, IL8, IL10 and TNF α were studied using the enzyme linked immunosorbent assay methods from (R and D system/USA). This study have shown that IL6 levels increased about two fold compared with healthy groups and TNF α levels was three times higher in CLL patient compared with healthy and IL10 levels was 3.5 fold that healthy. The conclusion IL 6, 10, and TNF α levels have significantly increased in patients compared with healthy control. However, IL8 was the same production in CLL compared with control.
