  • Interleukin (IL)-8
  • Interleukin (IL)-10
  • TNF alpha
  • VEGF


Interleukin (IL)-6  is a test used to detect Interleukin 6, but is also a diagnostic tool to help with early detection of inflammatory disorders like lupus, sepsis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

Interleukin (IL)-8  test checks for Interleukin 8(chemokine) which is a type of protein that aids in the body’s immune response to infections and inflammation. 

Interleukin (IL)-10 is a test that checks for IL-10, which is an immunosuppressive cytokine, that is discharged by a wide variety of cells during the course of an immune response.

TNF alpha test(tumor necrosis factor alpha) measures the level of tumor necrosis factor alpha in a blood sample. TNF is known as a cytokine that is produced by white blood cells as part of the body’s response to infection.
