INTERLEUKIN-6 IL-6 Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the INTERLEUKIN-6 (IL-6) test to measure the levels of IL-6 in the body. IL-6 is a type of cytokine, which is a protein that helps regulate the immune system and inflammation.

Test Details

The IL-6 test is primarily used to diagnose and monitor conditions that involve inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and certain types of cancer. It can also be used to assess the severity of these conditions and monitor the effectiveness of treatment.

High levels of IL-6 in the blood may indicate an active inflammatory response in the body. This information can help healthcare providers determine the appropriate course of treatment and monitor the progress of the disease.

However, it is important to note that IL-6 levels can also be elevated in other conditions, such as infections and certain autoimmune diseases. Therefore, further testing may be needed to confirm a diagnosis.
