Pain consistently ranks as one of the leading concerns among patients with rheumatoid arthritis, or RA. Identification of the major players in the mechanisms of pain, such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a necessary step toward the understanding of pain associated with RA. IL-6, a proinflammatory and pleiotropic cytokine with activities that contribute to the foundation of RA pathogenesis, also facilitates the inflammatory pain observed in RA. Visit www.RAandIL6.com to learn more about the broad and important role that IL-6 plays in RA.
