OBJECTIVE Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is an inflammatory cytokine with chemokine-like functions that plays a role in several inflammatory diseases including atherosclerosis. We recently demonstrated that in addition to macrophages and endothelial cells, platelets are a source of MIF. However, the functional relevance of platelet-derived MIF(More)
