Rajeswari S, Swaminathan S
Interleukins play very important role in renal, cardiac and liver functions. Among 37 interleukins identified so far, Interleukins 1, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17, 18 & 22 and their associated receptors are linked to majority of the above three organ functions. This review article highlight the recent research findings during the last three decades in this filed. The contents of this review article will certainly make awareness for researchers to select the appropriate interleukin assay for the diagnosis and monitoring prognosis after treatment in diseases linked to renal, cardiac and liver functions.
