We assessed whether the development of nephrotoxicity is linked to a distinct cytokine profile in patients receiving amphotericin B deoxycholate (AmBD). Patients and methods: In 58 patients who received AmBD, circulating serum interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8 and IL-10 were measured at baseline, week 1 and week 2 of antifungal treatment and correlated to the development of renal impairment. The Cox proportional hazards model approach was adopted for analysis. Results: The P value was 0.026 for the overall effect of IL-6 on time to development of AKI. An increasing or nonreceding IL-6 trend by week 1 of AmBD treatment (followed by a decreasing or non-receding IL-6 trend fromweek 1 to week 2) correlated with an increased likelihood of nephrotoxicity [hazard ratio (HR) 6.93, P value 0.005 and HR 3.46, P value 0.035, respectively]. Similarly, persistently increasing IL-8 levels were linked to a 3.84-fold increased likelihood of AKI. Conclusions: In patients receiving AmBD, persistence of an elevated pro-inflammatory cytokine milieu is associated with a predisposition to drug-related kidney injury. © The Author 2013.
