Interleukin 27 (IL-27) is a heterodimeric cytokine that involves a 4 helix package deal cytokine-like subunit, termed p28, and a soluble cytokine receptor-like subunit, EBI3 (Epstein-Barr virus-induced gene 3). The p28 subunit has homology with different single-chain cytokines, while EBI3 is said to the extracellular area of the hematopoietic cytokine receptor kin.

First, it is used as a qualitative term to describe both the high frequency of actions as well as the sameness or monotony of the job. Second, it has been used to describe fast manual work with little apparent rest between movements. Third, repetitive work can be quantified by the number of parts, efforts, keystrokes or wrist movements/per unit time. 1 Schematic of the upper limb showing examples of the sites and tissues potentially involved in work-and activity-related musculoskeletal disorders: {T} = tendon-related disorders; {N} = nerve-related disorders; {M} = musclerelated disorders; {V} = vascular disorders.

The medical term describing muscle pain is myalgia, which includes a few specific muscle pain syndromes. Myalgia can occur after vigorous or unaccustomed exercise, and also from work-related activity. A worker can develop a myopathy called myofascial syndrome, which is characterized by “the presence of one or more discrete areas (or trigger points) that are tender and hypersensitive and from which pain may radiate when pressure is applied” (Kuorinka and Forcier, 1995, p. 81). Myofascial syndrome could be associated with work-related activity, and a common work-related myofascial syndrome is tension neck syndrome (also called shoulder-neck myofascial syndrome).
