Regulation of interleukin-6 secretion from mononuclear blood cells by extracellular calcium.

Abstract

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is known to enhance osteoclast recruitment, and thereby bone resorption. Thus, IL-6 has been proposed to mediate hypercalcemia in multiple myeloma and the enhanced osteoclastic activity seen in postmenopausal osteoporosis. We recently reported that the calcium concentration in plasma affects IL-6 secretion from mononuclear blood cells… (More)
