*Also available as part of the Salimetrics Cytokine Panel*Interleukin-1β (IL-1 beta) is one of a family of biologically active small protein molecules known as cytokines. Cytokines are produced by a number of different cell types, including macrophages, monocytes, fibroblasts, and dendritic cells. (1,2,3) IL-1β is an example of a pro-inflammatory cytokine, since it is involved in the body’s inflammatory response to acute or chronic infections, or to conditions that are associated with a persistent low-grade inflammatory state, such as obesity. (4,5) IL-1β is therefore frequently used as a bio-marker of inflammation. (6,7) A study with normal mouse parotid acinar cells has shown that they synthesize IL-1β and store it in secretory granules. IL-1β is released from the granules following α- and β-adrenergic stimulation. (8) Relationships between IL-1β levels in blood and saliva are not fully understood.

IL-1 BETA SALIVA COLLECTION CONSIDERATIONS
Better results begin with better saliva collection. This collection protocol features general considerations to maximize salivary IL-1 Beta analysis. Use this analyte specific collection protocol to plan your collection methodology and sampling schemes.

Considerations for adding Salivary DNA to analyte Studies:
You can combine salivary analytes with easy, accurate, and affordable genomic testing using Salimetrics SalivaLab and the same sample that you are already collecting – no specialized saliva collection devices or additional samples are required.
