CytoDx Cytokine Profile
Once again, Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory is on the forefront of laboratory science, bringing clinicians the latest revolutionary clinical assessment tool, the CytoDx™.
With an assessment of 16 cytokines, the CytoDx™ provides clinicians with powerful insight into their patient’s systemic immune regulatory function, allowing for advanced health assessment and individualised treatment plans based on specific immune responses.Alterations in the immune system that result in chronic inflammation and autoimmunity have been linked to a wide range of health conditions and diseases. Cytokines are important mediators of many immune responses, and imbalances in cytokines have been shown to play key roles on chronic inflammation and autoimmunity.
Most cytokines can be generally characterised as pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory, depending on their primary effects on immune responses. Immune responses are often further characterised by the type of T helper (Th) cell involved.
With CytoDx™, you can assess systemic immune status:
- Pro-inflammatory / anti-inflammatory cytokine balance
- Th1, Th2, Th3, Th17 and T-regulatory cytokine responses
- Efficacy of immune balancing and modulating approaches
"It is now widely recognized that the gut – and especially the gut microbiome – plays a critical role in regulating immune function, and has been shown to affect circulating cytokines such IL-6, TNF-alpha, and IL-17.”
