lNTERLEUKIN-6 (IL-6) is a multifunctional cytokine that regulates various aspects of the immune response, acute-phase reaction and haematopoiesis (for reviews see refs 1, 2). In vitro, leukaemia inhibitory factor, oncostatin M, ciliary neurotrophic factor and interleukin-11 display overlapping activities with IL-6. This functional redundancy may be explained by the interactions of specific binding receptors with a common signal-transducing receptor (gp130) (for reviews see refs 3, 4). To… Expand

Immune-neuroendocrine responses to infection in mouse and fish
TLDR
IL-6-/mice are more susceptible to disseminated candidiasis, and the effect of IL-6 is most likely mediated by neutrophils. Expand
Increased susceptibility to systemic candidiasis in interleukin-6 deficient mice.
TLDR
IL-6-/- mice are more susceptible to disseminated candidiasis, and the effect of IL-6 is most likely mediated by neutrophils. Expand
Increased susceptibility to systemic candidiasis in interleukin-6 deficient mice.
TLDR
IL-6: mice are more susceptible to disseminated candidiasis, and the effect of IL-6 is most likely mediated by neutrophils. Expand
IL-6 Knockout Mice
TLDR
IL-6 has been shown to favour the resolution of infections and to promote optimal humoral responses to various antigens while at the same time being required for the development of immune-mediated diseases, such as CIA or EAE, as well as of diseases caused by improper expansion of specific hematopietic compartments. Expand
Defective inflammatory response in interleukin 6-deficient mice
TLDR
It is reported here that in the absence of IL- 6, mice are unable to mount a normal inflammatory response to localized tissue damage generated by turpentine injection, and IL-6 is identified as an essential mediator of the inflammatoryresponse to localized inflammation. Expand
Interleukin-6
TLDR
Based on the preclinical activity of recombinant human (rh) IL-6, a phase I study in 42 patients with refractory malignancy found flu-like toxicity was observed, and when rhIL-6 was administered after chemotherapy for sarcoma, accelerated platelet recovery was noted in the patients treated with rhIL -6.

IL-6 Unique Functions in Inflammation, Bone Metabolism, and B-Cell Neoplasias Revealed by Studies on IL-6-Deficient Mice
TLDR
Circulating IL-6 levels are normally very low; however, they are rapidly increased by a number of stimuli such as bacterial or viral infection, tissue damage-induced inflammation, and different kinds of traumas. Expand
Therapeutic uses of anti-interleukin-6 receptor antibody.
TLDR
Tocilizumab, a humanized anti-IL-6 receptor monoclonal antibody, has successfully proved its outstanding efficacy against rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and Castleman disease, leading to the approval of tocilIZumab for the treatment of these diseases. Expand
Resistance to fever induction and impaired acute-phase response in interleukin-1 beta-deficient mice.
TLDR
A central role for IL-1 beta as a pyrogen and a mediator of the acute-phase response in a subset of inflammatory disease models is highlighted, and the notion that blocking the action of a single key cytokine can alter the course of specific immune and inflammatory responses is supported. Expand
Lack of Interleukin-6 Affects IFN-γ and TNF-α Production and Early In Vivo Control of Brucella abortus Infection
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IL-6 contributes to host resistance during the early phase of B. abortus infection in vivo, and suggested that its protective role maybe partially mediated by proinflammatory immune responses and immune cell recruitment. Expand

Roles of alpha beta and gamma delta T cell subsets in viral immunity.
TLDR
It is made that alpha beta T-cell memory to viruses is long-lived, and the need for antigen persistence to maintain such memory is questioned, and there is as yet no understanding of the biological significance (if any) of these lymphocytes in viral immunity. Expand
Mice lacking the tumour necrosis factor receptor 1 are resistant to IMF-mediated toxicity but highly susceptible to infection by Listeria monocytogenes
TLDR
It is reported here that mice homozygous for a disrupted Tnfr l allele (Tnfr1 0) are resistant to the lethal effect of low doses of lipopolysaccharide after sensitization with D-galactosamine, but remain sensitive to high doses oflipopoly Saccharide. Expand
Multiple defects of immune cell function in mice with disrupted interferon-gamma genes.
TLDR
IFN-gamma is essential for the function of several cell types of the murine immune system and has impaired production of macrophage antimicrobial products and reduced expression of Macrophage major histocompatibility complex class II antigens. Expand
B cell stimulating factor 2/interleukin 6 is a costimulant for human thymocytes and T lymphocytes
TLDR
IL-6 induced a six-to seven-fold increase in proliferation of human thymocytes stimulated with suboptimal doses of PHA, and it is suggested that IL-6 is also an important regulatory of cellular immunity. Expand
Type I IL-1 receptor blockade exacerbates murine listeriosis.
TLDR
It was found that IL-1 is produced in livers and spleens of mice shortly after the i.v. injection of a sublethal or lethal Listeria monocytogenes inoculum, and evidence showing thatIL-1 plays a role in antibacterial resistance early in listeriosis was obtained through the use of 35F5 mAb. Expand
IgG1 plasmacytosis in interleukin 6 transgenic mice.
TLDR
The evidence indicates that deregulated gene expression of IL-6 can trigger polyclonal plasmacytosis but cannot induce plasmACYtoma, and it is suggested that additional genetic changes may be required for the generation of plasma cell neoplasia. Expand
Immune response in mice that lack the interferon-gamma receptor.
TLDR
Mutant mice offer the possibility for the further elucidation of IFN-gamma-mediated functions by transgenic cell- or tissue-specific reconstitution of a functional receptor. Expand
Mice deficient for the 55 kd tumor necrosis factor receptor are resistant to endotoxic shock, yet succumb to L. monocytogenes infection
TLDR
The TNFRp55 function renders mice resistant to lethal dosages of either lipopolysaccharides or S. aureus enterotoxin B, and the 55 kd TNFR plays a decisive role in the host's defense against microorganisms and their pathogenic factors. Expand
Beta 2-microglobulin-, CD8+ T-cell-deficient mice survive inoculation with high doses of vaccinia virus and exhibit altered IgG responses.
TLDR
The data indicate that CD8+ lymphocytes are not required to clear high doses of vaccinia virus, and they suggest thatbeta 2m-/- mice are less efficient at antigen-specific IgG production than their beta 2m+/- littermates. Expand
Release of nitric oxide during the T cell-independent pathway of macrophage activation. Its role in resistance to Listeria monocytogenes.
TLDR
It is concluded that NO. is a critical effector molecule of T cell-independent natural resistance to LM as studied in the SCID mouse, and that the NO.-mediated response is essential for both SCID and immunocompetent host to survive after LM infection. Expand
