IL-8 and IL-6 primarily mediate the inflammatory response in fibromyalgia (FM) patients.

 

These findings indicate that IL-6 and IL-8 are two of the most constant inflammatory mediators in FM and that their levels correlate significantly with the severity of symptoms. PubMed, J Neuroimmunol, 2016 Jan 15;290:22-5. (Also see Interleukins)
