Increased IL18 mRNA levels in peripheral artery disease and its association with triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels: a pilot study.
The association between IL18 -137G/C polymorphism with the risk of CAD has been studied extensively; however, conflicting results have been reported.
The WB validation results were consistent with proteomic results of the expression fold changes of 1.6 and 1.5 (up-regulation, spots 3 and 4) for PTGES3, 1.8 of CALM3 (up-regulation, spot 5), 2.0 of TCEB2 (down-regulation, spot 6), 1.5 of IL18 (up-regulation, spot 2), 1.8 of BANF1 (up-regulation, spot 8) 1.5 of MYL6 (up-regulation, spot 7) and 1.5 of RPL23 (down-regulation, spot 9), as shown in Table 2.
The pro-inflammatory cytokine IL18 is expressed in human adipose tissue and strongly upregulated by TNFalpha in human adipocytes.
Like IL-1[beta] and IL18, IL-33 lacks a signal sequence at the N-terminus and is therefore not secreted via the conventional vesicle transport pathway.
Pralnacasan, a caspase-1 blocker, has been reported to attenuate inflammation in a model of DCM by reducing IL-1[beta], IL18, TNF[alpha], and IFN[gamma] levels, intracardiac macrophage, and lymphocyte infiltrates and also to improve insulin sensitivity [107, 111].
Taken together, our findings indicate that IFN-[gamma] treatment may induce the changes in some cytokines in AP which are characterized by reduction in IL27 and increase in IL18. This suggests that IFN-[gamma] may inhibit the IL-27 production to a certain extent.

In a recent cross-sectional study of PTSD patients, a reduction in the transcriptional activity of genes that regulate inflammation including FKBP5 and IL18 and STAT pathways was reported in an urban sample of primarily African American participants [30].
IL18. PF levels of this cytokine are elevated in women with peritoneal, minimal-to mild-stage endometriosis [115].
