RA is associated with systemic bone remodeling leading to bone loss. Under normal conditions, proinflammatory cytokines, including IL-6, regulate bone remodeling. However, in patients with RA, IL-6 promotes bone resorption. IL-6 contributes to bone resorption by stimulating RANKL expression and autoantibody production. Visit to learn more about the broad and important role that IL-6 plays in RA.
