Some Question if COVID 19 Cytokine Storm is Real

covid Jun 10, 2021

Researchers from Radboud University Medical Center intensive care (IC) department compared  the concentration of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukins 6 and 8 (IL-6, IL-8) between COVID 19 patients and those with ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) and septic shock.  COVID 19 patients did not have the same elevations of TNF-alpha and IL-6 or IL-8 as these other conditions.  They therefore question if COVID 19 cytokine storm really exists.
