SummaryIn order to study the role of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in inflammatory disease we monitored plasma levels of IL-6 and acute phase proteins such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and renin substrate (RS) in patients with reactive arthritis (ReA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Venous plasma samples were collected: (1) during the acute phase or exacerbation of the disease, and (2) several months later during convalescense. Increased mean [95% confidence intervals… CONTINUE READING
