BACKGROUND AND AIMS Cytokine production by endothelial cells, has, for practical reasons, been chiefly studied in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) but, because tissue-specific differences apparently exist, the role of human intestinal microvascular endothelial cells (HIMEC) as a source of mucosal cytokines was also assessed. METHODS The… CONTINUE READING
