The role of proinflammatory cytokines in the pathogenesis of fever has been discovered at febrile responses to LPS, showing that TNF has cryogenic properties in this model [37]. .. Fever: the role of pyrogens and cryogens. not affect mTNF-c-induced fever. 6 These data indicate that endogenous TNF-a is probably a pyrogen and that previous results suggesting cryogenic actions of. (i.e. endogenous pyrogens), including interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6 and others. the evidence that specific cytokines, IL-1 and IL-6, play a role in fever. .. It is possible that some of these may exert antipyretic or cryogenic activity during infection.

Proc Mol Biol Transl Soc Indeed, activated monocytes are present in the bloodstream with low or absent circulating cytokine concentrations [ 68—70 ], and production of cytokines by perivascular cells in the circumventricular organs has been demonstrated [ 71 ].

Reactive oxygen species ROS may cause an early increase of PGE 2 during the first fever phase, which is, however, not relevant for the initiation of fever see text for further details, from Ref.


Passage cryogneics cytokines across the blood—brain barrier. These signals are transported through vagal afferent fibers and noradrenergic neurons in the brain stem, reaching the OVLT, where the release feved noradrenaline pygogens PG release and fever [ 20 ]. The acute phase response. Curr Opin Hematol 9: On the other hand, the fever response rolf LPS challenge rol blocked in guinea pigs with low complement levels obtained by pretreatment with cobra venom factor, suggesting a direct role of the complement system in the induction of fever [ 54 ].

How may circulating cytokines signal the brain? Alteration of endotoxin fever and release of arginine vasopressin by dehydration in the guinea pig. A long-standing debate regarding the need for PG in the induction of fever, or of other mediators such as corticotrophin-releasing factor or platelet-activating factor [ 6 ], has been recently settled by showing that mice lacking the PGE receptor subtype EP 3 are not able to develop a febrile response [ 21 ].

The reasons for these discrepancies are unclear.
