AB Serum interleukin-6 (IL-6) was measured in picograms/mL (pg/mL) using
an immunoassay (ELISA) in healthy individuals (n = 148), of whom 128
were classified as dextral and 20 as non-dextral, as per a laterality
questionnaire. Only 3 (15%) non-dextral individuals had serum IL-6
levels above the lower limit of the assay sensitivity as compared to
59 (46%) of dextral individuals (P < 0.013). There were no
significant correlations between previously detd. mitogen stimulated
interleukin-2 prodn. and autoantibodies in a subset of the same
individuals. While this data does not provide causal information, it
adds to the evidence of the asym. regulation of immune functions by
the cerebral hemispheres.
