Scholarcy highlights

  • Abnormal levels of interleukin-6 were described in patients with ALS, related to an inflammatory process
  • The same pattern exists in patients with ALS and controls: the highest levels are found in hypoxic conditions and undetectable levels are found in normoxemic conditions
  • Elevated IL-6 levels in ALS could correspond to a normal response to hypoxemia
