Inflammatory/metabolic factors and imbalance of haemostasis contribute to cardiovascular disease risk in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Interleukin-6 (IL-6), a cytokine that plays an important role in immune responses, is implicated in its pathogenesis. In this study, the effects of the IL-6 receptor inhibitor, tocilizumab, on serum adipokines and coagulation/fibrinolysis factors in RA patients were examined. Nineteen consecutive patients (18 women, aged 48 ± 9 years) received six monthly infusions of 8 mg/kg tocilizumab for moderate or severe RA...

BACKGROUND: Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that has been found to be increased in type 2 diabetic subjects. However, it still remains unclear if these elevated IL-6 levels are co-incidental or if this cytokine is causally related to the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes in humans. Therefore, in the present study we examined insulin sensitivity, serum adipokine levels and lipid parameters in human subjects before and after treatment with the IL-6 receptor antibody Tocilizumab...
