Adrenal and gonadal steroids inhibit IL-6 secretion by human marrow cells.

Abstract

Adrenal and gonadal steroids have protective effects on the skeleton that may be conferred partly by their ability to inhibit bone resorptive cytokines such as interleukin 6 (IL-6). We tested the hypothesis that IL-6 secretion by human marrow cells and a line of marrow stromal cells (KM101) is inhibited by dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), dihydrotestosterone… (More)
