Cytokine storm in COVID-19
Cytokines and cytokine detection
The severity of COVID-19 disease, according to current knowledge, is more strongly determined by an overreaction of the coagulation and immune system than by the virus itself.
Patients with severe COVID-19 infection may develop a cytokine release syndrome (CRS), also known as hyperinflammation or cytokine storm, which is characterized by a significant increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-6, IL-1ß, IL-2R, IL-8, TNF-α. CRS is one of the most common complications of COVID-19 and is associated with high morbidity. The early detection of hyperinflammation in COVID-19 is of crucial importance. Immunomodulation methods provide a promising therapeutic approach.
Our portfolio includes a wide range of assays for cytokine detection, as well as cytokines of highest quality for your research.
