The scientific research community is working hard to fully understand the biological processes of COVID-19 infection and its related immune response. It has been reported that severe and critically ill subjects with COVID-19 often have elevated inflammatory factors. Researchers believe this overactivation of the immune system may be from excessive production of inflammatory cytokines -- a process known as a cytokine storm. This toxic immune response is often associated with lung inflammation and fluid buildup leading to bacterial pneumonia increasing the risk of mortality. Therefore, the following cytokines may require close monitoring within your research. IBL-America is committed to providing a broad range of tools researchers can use as they investigate and provide critical new information on the detection and prevention of this virus and many others in your experiment models.
