A Mitogen and Chemoattractant for Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells

Abstract

Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is a chemokine produced by a variety of cell types involved in atherogenesis and is chemotactic for neutrophils and lymphocytes. A recent study has shown that IL-8 is angiogenic and induces proliferation and chemotaxis of endothelial cells. The present study was undertaken to find out whether IL-8 is also mitogenic and chemotactic for… (More)
