complicated SABSI. Cytokine levels in plasma from patients with uncomplicated (clear bars, n = 50) and complicated (solid grey bars, n = 11) SABSI at diagnosis (day 0), day 7 and day 14. Data shown represent mean cytokine concentration ± SEM for IL-6 (A), GRO-γ (B), RANTES (C) and leptin (D). Dotted lines in each panel indicate the mean cytokine levels found in four healthy control individuals.
