Background Discrimination of the cases with severe and mild pneumonia is crucial due to the requirement of hospitalization, additional management, and treatment protocols. We aimed to analyze the role of IL6 (Interleukin), IL8, IL10, VCAM-1 (soluble Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule), and sSELE (soluble E-selectin) in the diagnosis and prognostic evaluation of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP).
