From: Fas-ligand and interleukin-6 in the cerebrospinal fluid are early predictors of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and long-term outcomes after birth asphyxia in term infants

Fig. 1

Fas-ligand (FasL) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) correlate with the degree of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), which was classified as mild (HIE-I, n = 14), moderate (HIE-II, n = 16), or severe (HIE-III, n = 14). The controls were infants with no signs of HIE (n = 20). FasL levels (pg/mL) (a) and IL-6 levels (pg/mL) (b) were higher in the patients with HIE-III and HIE-II than in the patients with HIE-I and the controls. ***p < 0.0001
