ScienceDaily: New tool pulls elusive COVID-19 marker from human blood

ScienceDaily: New tool pulls elusive COVID-19 marker from human blood. “When COVID-19 attacks, the immune system produces a cytokine, or protein, called Interleukin-6 (IL-6), whose concentrations can offer vital information about a patient’s level and stage of infection…. Now researchers at McMaster University and SQI Diagnostics have created a surface that repels every other element of human blood except the critical cytokine, opening a timely window for understanding the progress of COVID-19 in individual patients.”
