SAA-LDL and IL-6 levels were determined using commercially available ELISA kits at CREAM, Army Medical College.
Pearson correlation test was used to find correlation between SAA-LDL and IL-6.

Circulatory IL-6 and tumor necrosis factor - alpha have been shown to be highly significantly associated with chronic periodontitis, as their concentration declined with periodontal treatment.
During the course of HFRS, the concentration of IL-6 increased on the third day, peaked on the sixth day, and decreased significantly during the eighth and 12th day.
The discovery of age-related increases in IL-6 isn't just about the effect of caregiving," comments epidemiologist Burton H.
This case study indicates that the onset of increasing IL-6 concentrations 3 h after catheter insertion most probably represents local production of IL-6 and not the circulating concentrations-which indicates that this sampling method may have limitations when time series of immune mediators (e.
PCR primers for rat glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (G3PDH), IL-1, IL-6, TNF-[Alpha], IL-2, and IFN-[Gamma] were purchased commercially from Clontech (Palo Alto, CA); PCR primers for rat IL-4 and IL-5 were synthesized by the core facility of the Human Studies Division at the U.
Louis, who has studied fat's IL-6 production in people, also argues that the excess CRP in obese individuals "may stem from their having more fat tissue, not inflammation.
Those individuals reporting pronounced stress in their lives produced the most mucus, displayed the largest surges in IL-6 production, and cited the most-severe symptoms of respiratory infection during the course of the study, the researchers say.
Because pathological levels of IL-1, IL-4, IL-6 and IL-13 seem to contribute to a variety of disease states, these Cytokine Traps have the potential to be important therapeutic agents.
