    Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a 26-kD protein released by fibroblasts, T lymphocytes, endothelial cells, monocytes, and keratinocytes during inflammatory responses. IL-6 has pluripotent activities, including the stimulation of the monocytic lineage, the induction of megakaryopoiesis and the hepatic acute phase response, as well as the modulation of T- and B-cell responses. IL-6 is also capable of mediating direct and indirect tumor cell destruction and that it is potentially important for the immunotherapy of cancer[1. Recombinant human interleukin-6 (IL-6/BSF-2/HSF) regulates the synthesis of acute phase proteins in human hepatocytes[2].
