By animal experiments in rat, it has been known that Interleukin-6(IL-6) is secreted from renal mesangial cells and is an autocrine growth factor for the proliferation of mesangial cells. According to these facts, several studies have been tried for its clinical usefulness by measuring their serum or urinary IL-6 in glomerulonephritis patients with mesangial proliferation. The authors measured urinary IL-6...
