Cytokine responses to stimulation with H37Rv and LPS, expressed as the area under the concentration time curve (AUC) between Day 0 (immediately prior to commencing treatment) and Day 7 of TB treatment. Patients who had a poor outcome had lower production of TNFα, IL1β and IL7 compared to matched control patients who had an uneventful clinical course. No significant differences were identified between patient groups in the other cytokines and chemokines analysed
