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.

A comparison of the effects of environmental and preoptic heating and pyrogen on plasma cortisol levels. The Epidemiology of Sepsis in the United States from through An additional important factor for the ligand-receptor interaction is a plasma factor, LPS-binding protein, which transfers LPS from the circulating micellae to the receptor complex [ 74 ].
