Scientific information: 
Scientific info: The Salimetrics Salivary IL-6 (Interleukin-6) Enzyme Immunoassay Kit was specifically designed to standardize the detection of IL-6 in saliva samples for research and biomedical laboratories. Salivary IL-6 levels can be very low in certain participant groups, and pilot studies in the population of interest are recommended to determine baseline measures. The average inter- and intra-assay precision coefficients of variation are low with no deleterious matrix effects often found in saliva which are characterized through dilution- and spike-recovery validation procedures. This IL-6 assay kit has also been formatted to minimize cross reactivity for related cytokines.

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a pleiotropic cytokine involved in a multitude of inflammatory responses with roles in immune regulation and pathologic conditions including both acute and chronic inflammatory diseases. IL-6 initiates and up-regulates inflammation, triggers the release of acute phase proteins, regulates inflammatory response, attracts immune cells to sites of injury or infection and stimulates coagulation. Salivary levels have varying correlations to serum levels depending on the research applications.
