S.V. Knysh, T.A. Nevezkina, N.A. Zukovich, V.A. Malkov, E.V. Baibarina

The immune mechanism of shingles pathogenesis stays unclear. The role of IL-12 also is ambiguous. Purpose: comparative analysis of IL-12p40 and IL-12p70 serum levels in 25 patients with herpes zoster; control group consisted of 25 healthy donors. Results: A decrease in IL-12p40 and IL-12p70 levels in blood serum of herpes zoster patients was found (p<0,05). Conclusion: IL-12 deficiency can lead to NK cells dysfunction. (Cytokines and Inflammaton. 2017. Vol. 16. № 3. P. 42–44.)

Keywords: herpes, shingles, IL-12, cytokines.
