Reduction in serum IL-6 after vacination of breast cancer patients with tumour-associated antigens is related to estrogen receptor status.

Abstract

Elevated serum IL-6 concentrations have been associated with poor prognosis in a variety of cancers, and decreases in serum IL-6 concentrations have been reported after chemotherapy. We have demonstrated that serum IL-6 concentrations are elevated in breast cancer patients [normal women 0.7 +/- 2.5 pg/ml (n=36), breast cancer patients 38.3 +/- 138.7 pg/ml… (More)
