cytokine assay

cytokine assay

a blood test to detect interleukins, used predominantly for research. Clinically, cytokine assays may be used to measure the progression of inflammatory disease, AIDS, and various malignancies; determine disease risk; determine treatment of disease; and monitor patients receiving cytokine or anticytokine therapy.
