[Anti-fungal drug liranaftate suppresses fungal element-promoted production of IL-8 in normal human keratinocytes].

Abstract

Dermatophytes reside in the stratum corneum of the epidermis, and one scenario in superficial dermatophytosis is that fungi stimulate keratinocytes to secrete chemokines, thereby attracting inflammatory cells. We investigated the effect of the cytokine / chemokine production of keratinocytes solely stimulated by fungal elements. The fungal elements beta-D… (More)
