The correlation between oxidant activity of the ZLV patients' sera and concentrations of HDL fraction was determined by Spearman test.
Cytokine production of IL-6, IL-12p40, and IL-10 by PBMC-derived macrophages in the presence of ZLV patients' sera was not altered when compared with cultures in the same conditions in the presence of healthy individuals' sera (p > 0.05); however, TNF-[alpha] production was reduced in the presence of ZLV patients' sera more than in the normal sera (p < 0.05, Figure 1).
