The pyrogen concentration in the sample is then determined from the IL-1B concentration via an endotoxin standard curve, and analyzed with the PyroDetect data analysis tool.

The IL-1 family (8) comprises 3 members: IL-1A and IL-1B, which act as proinflammatory agonists, and their competitive antagonist, the IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA).
The scientists then looked for variants in human genes dubbed Il-1B and Il-1RN.

In the study of 134 people with mild, moderate or severe gum disease, those with the most advanced disease were most likely to carry a variant of the IL-1B gene.
Histamine dihydrochloride, the active agent in the gel, has been shown in preclinical work to reduce inflammation by preventing the production and release of oxygen free radicals and proinflamatory cytokines such TNF-alpha and IL-1b, thereby reducing oxidative stress.
