IL6 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine involved in acute-phase reaction, inflammation and cancer progression. Secreted by T cells, macrophages and fibroblasts, it induces B and T cell proliferation.
It is being studied in a wide variety of research areas including Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, depression and several cancers.
Along with TGFb, IL6 is the main promoter of T cell differentiation into TH17, a new component of immuno-oncology.
Cisbio's Human IL6 kit is a homogeneous, add and read assay to measure IL6 secretion in supernatant. It offers a fast, efficient alternative to ELISA.
