Neutrophil-activating peptide-1/interleukin 8, a novel cytokine that activates neutrophils.
Introduction Neutrophil accumulation in a tissue is characteristic of inflammation and is observed in a variety of pathological conditions as disparate as infection, trauma, ischemia, and cancer. TheExpand

Impaired monocyte migration and reduced type 1 (Th1) cytokine responses in C-C chemokine receptor 2 knockout mice.
Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is a potent agonist for mononuclear leukocytes and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and granulomatous lung disease. To determineExpand

The Functional Role of the ELR Motif in CXC Chemokine-mediated Angiogenesis (*)
In this study, we demonstrate that the CXC family of chemokines displays disparate angiogenic activity depending upon the presence or absence of the ELR motif. CXC chemokines containing the ELR motifExpand

Abnormalities in Monocyte Recruitment and Cytokine Expression in Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 1–deficient Mice
Monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) is a CC chemokine that attracts monocytes, memory T lymphocytes, and natural killer cells. Because other chemokines have similar target cell specificitiesExpand

Interleukin-8 as a macrophage-derived mediator of angiogenesis.
Angiogenic factors produced by monocytes-macrophages are involved in the pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory disorders characterized by persistent angiogenesis. The possibility was tested thatExpand

TLR3 is an endogenous sensor of tissue necrosis during acute inflammatory events
Ligands from dying cells are a source of Toll-like receptor (TLR) activating agents. Although TLR3 is known to respond to RNA from necrotic cells, the relative importance of this response in vivoExpand

Inflammatory cytokines in patients with persistence of the acute respiratory distress syndrome.
To determine the relationship between airspace cytokines and cellular inflammatory responses in patients with the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), we performed bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL)Expand

An important role for the chemokine macrophage inflammatory protein-1 alpha in the pathogenesis of the T cell-mediated autoimmune disease, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is a CD4+ T cell-mediated, inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that serves as a model for the human demyelinatingExpand

Cultured lung fibroblasts isolated from patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis have a diminished capacity to synthesize prostaglandin E2 and to express cyclooxygenase-2.
Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) inhibits fibroblast proliferation and collagen synthesis. In this study, we compared lung fibroblasts isolated from patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (F-IPF) andExpand

Interleukin-8 and development of adult respiratory distress syndrome in at-risk patient groups
Neutrophils have been implicated in the pathogenesis of the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We have measured concentrations of the neutrophil attractant interleukin-8 in blood andExpand
