Interleukin-6 is a multifunctional cytokine produced by variety of cells including tumor cells. It is produced by monocytes, macrophages, B-cells and T-cells. Interleukin-6 stimulates platelet production through thrombopoietin. Interleukin-6 in surplus amount is also produced by epithelial ovarian cancer cells. Hence, it is a useful prognostic factor for ovarian cancer, and is associated with disease stage and survival period.
