We assessed whether cytokine production-interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6 and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha)-is affected in depressed patients, dysthymia (Dt) and major depression (MD), and its association with various parameters of severity and clinical course. We found a possible different pattern of interleukin production between Dt and MD.
