IL-18 shares with IL-1 the same family of receptors and several identical signal transduction pathways. Because of these similarities, IL-18 was investigated for its ability to induce prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) synthesis in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), a prominent, proinflammatory property of IL-1. IL-18 was highly active in PBMC by(More)
Regulation of expression of interleukin 7 (IL-7) mRNA is aberrant in the leukemic subset of cells of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients. The entire coding sequence for IL-7 as well as an alternatively spliced IL-7 mRNA are transcribed in these leukemic cells. No IL-7 mRNA expression is detected in fresh peripheral blood mononuclear cells from(More)
The dose-dependent increase in mortality in patients with sepsis who are treated with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) p75 soluble receptor Fc conjugate (p75-Fc) remains unexplained. In this study, neutralization of TNF-alpha-induced interleukin (IL)-8 by p75-Fc in whole human blood exhibited a U-shaped inhibition curve, whereas the TNF-soluble p55 receptor,(More)
