Hi Wallace:

Genzyme has two products that you might be interested in.The first is the 
monoclonal mouse anti-human IL-6 (1618-01). This is a neutralizing 
antibody that cross-reacts with rat. The second is the monoclonal rat 
anti-mouse IL-6 receptor (1992-01). This antibody recognizes mouse and 
rat IL-6 Receptor, and neutralizes IL-6 induced bioactivity in both of 
these species.

If you send me your fax number, I can forward copies of the technical 
specifications of these antibodies.

PS. Inter Medico is the Canadian distributor for
