Abstract

BackgroundInterleukin-6 (IL-6) production facilitates a shift from acute to chronic inflammation that may induce the development of some diseases and aging. Several studies have suggested that adiposity is closely related to serum IL-6 level, but their authors examined relatively young older adults (aged 60–80 years), so it is not clear whether this association would also occur in people at a more advanced age.
