The blood test Interleukin 1 beta from serum can only be taken at the laboratory in monchengladbach, not at a prick station.
Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β), also known as catabolin, is a cytokine that, along with interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1α) and IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA), among others, forms the interleukin 1 family. This cytokine is found in amniota and is a key player in inflammation.
IL-1β is related to IL-1α and tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα). Although TNF-α can induce apoptosis in cancer cells, IL-1 typically does not have this effect. IL-1 is a primary inflammatory cytokine made primarily by monocytes and macrophages in response to viruses, immune complexes, microbial products, and other cytokines, such as IL-2 and IFNγ.
