Summary of "Inflammatory Cytokines in Children and Adolescents with Depressive Disorders: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis."

Meta-analytic evidence shows alterations of peripheral inflammatory cytokines in adults with depressive disorders. By contrast, no evidence synthesis on alterations of peripheral inflammatory cytokines in children/adolescents with depressive disorders is available to date. To fill this gap, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of case-control studies comparing serum cytokine levels in children/adolescents with depressive disorders and healthy controls.
