Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a multi-functional cytokine that regulates immune responses, acute phase reactions and hematopoiesis and may play a central role in host defense mechanisms.

This cytokine is involved in :

  • the induction of B-cell differentiation,
  • the induction of acute phase proteins in liver cells,
  • growth promotion of myeloma/plasmacytoma/hybridoma cells,
  • induction of IL-2 and IL-2 receptor expression,
  • proliferation and differentiation of T cells,
  • inhibition of cell growth of certain myeloid leukemic cell lines and induction of their differentiation to macrophages,
  • enhancement of IL-3-induced multipotential colony cell formation in hematopoietic stem cells and induction of maturation of megakaryocytes as a thrombopoietic factor,
  • induction of mesangial cell growth,
  • induction of neural differentiation of PC cells
  • induction of keratinocyte growth.

The abnormal production of IL-6 was first suggested to be related to polyclonal B-cell activation with autoantibody production in patients with cardiac myxoma. Since then, IL-6 has been suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of a variety of diseases. Measurement of IL-6 levels in serum and other body fluids thus provides more detailed insights into various pathological situations.
