  • 1Division of Cardiology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pennsylvania 15213, USA.


In a group of patients with New York Heart Association class IV heart failure, significant relations between interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and between levels of both interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha and plasma levels of norepinephrine were observed. The present study also demonstrates that in patients with heart failure, elevated levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha and interleukin-6 may be present even without cachexia.
