Sample text

2009), fever occurred in 5 patients in the clozapine group, but none in the olanzapine group. Both clozapine and olanzapine activated plasma TNF-α, but only clozapine had a significant effect on sIL-2r and IL-6, and the relationship between fever and cytokine levels was similar to that found by Pollmacher et al. (1996). In both studies fever was self-limiting, and Kluge et al. (2009) found IL-6 levels had returned to baseline by week 6 of clozapine. IL-6 and TNF-α are potent pyrogens. Wang et al.

Abdel-Wahab et al. (2014) found the pro-inflammatory TNF-α increased in cardiac tissue with clozapine, while the anti-inflammatory interleukin-10 (IL-10) decreased. Administration of captopril reversed both of these effects. Wang et al. (2008) also observed increased epinephrine and norepinephrine concentrations with clozapine administration which were reduced with propranolol. Concentrations did not change from day 7 to day 14, although cardiac injury had reduced by day 14. These findings suggest that hypercatecholaminergia may induce myocarditis via the β-adrenergic system, possibly with downregulation of cardiac β-receptors in response to the effect of clozapine, as indicated by the time-related reduction in cardiac effect.

Wang et al. (2008) and Abdel-Wahab et al. (2014) have established clozapine dose-dependent associations with cytokines and linked these to the development of myocarditis in mice and rats, respectively. , 2008). Coadministration of propranolol significantly attenuated the effect on TNF-α, though not as far as to levels observed with clozapine 10 mg kg21 day21. Abdel-Wahab et al. (2014) found the pro-inflammatory TNF-α increased in cardiac tissue with clozapine, while the anti-inflammatory interleukin-10 (IL-10) decreased.
