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.

Production of cytokines at the tissue level has been suggested as an alternative pathway for the induction of crygenics signal leading to fever, rather than in circulation.

During the late phase of fever, the interthreshold zone widens, the threshold for thermolytic responses remaining elevated, but that for the activation of thermogenic responses decreasing for details see: Attenuation of fever and release of cytokines after repeated injections of lipopolysaccharide in guinea pigs.


J Exp Biol It thus became apparent that the EP activity in the plasma is represented by several of these cytokines with proinflammatory properties: In addition to production and release of proinflammatory cytokines in the peripheral tissues and in the circulation, release of these mediators at the level of the OVLT endothelium may also represent an important mechanism in the induction of fever.

A key event in the induction of fever in the classical model of pathogenesis described above is the release of pyrogenic cytokines into the bloodstream to mediate the signal leading to a febrile response from the site of inflammation to the thermoregulatory center in the hypothalamus figure 2panel I.
