TNFSF/TNFRSF cytokine gene expression in sickle cell anemia: Up-regulated TNF-like cytokine 1A (TL1A) and its decoy receptor (DcR3) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and plasma.


Sickle cell anemia (SCA), a disorder with an important inflammatory component, where vasoocclusion is major contributor to the disease pathophysiology. Pro-inflammatory cytokines play an important regulatory role in the process of inflammation. We investigated the expression TL1A/DR3/DcR3 cytokine signaling pathway in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and their corresponding plasma levels in SCA subjects who presented with acute painful episodes.
