Fas-ligand (FasL) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) correlate with the long-term outcomes after perinatal asphyxia. Adverse outcome is defined as adverse neurological outcome at the 18-month assessment or death. FasL levels (pg/mL) (a) and IL-6 (pg/mL) levels (b) were higher in patients with an adverse outcome (n = 24) than in patients with a normal outcome (n = 20) and the controls (n = 20). ***p < 0.0001
