Table 2. Metabolic, cytokine, LASV Ag, IgG, and IgM profiles for five patients who succumbed to LF at the KGH LFW in recent months, and in two healthy controls. Thirteen metabolic indicators, 11 cytokines, LASV NP Ag, IgM, and IgG status were compared between 5 representative recent fatal cases of LF (G-1209, G-1220, G-1380, G-1401), including one previously characterized fatal late term pregnancy (G-1177), and two healthy volunteers (LS004, LS022). Reported normal ranges for metabolic indicators (Abaxis, Inc.) and serum cytokine levels (Cambridge Biomedical [IL-1b, IL-10], BD Biosciences [IL-2, IL-4, IL-8, IL-12p70], R&D Systems [IL-5, IL-6], Thermo Scientific [TNF-α], BioVendor [TNF-β, IFN-γ]) are shown in the rightmost corresponding columns. Metabolic panel values are in SI units, and cytokine levels are in pg/mL. ELISA data was scored as positive (+), negative (-), or indeterminate (+/-), based on statistical comparison to positive and negative sera, and using a positive control serum dilution series.
