Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus encodes viral IL-6 (vIL-6). To investigate the potential role of vIL-6 in the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)- related primary effusion lymphomas (PEL), a sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was developed for vIL-6 and applied to the study of PEL.
