To test the hypothesis that mesothelial cells play a role in regulating inflammatory responses within the pleural space, we examined neutrophil chemotactic activity released by cytokine-stimulated mesothelial cells. Human mesothelial cells were isolated from patients with transudative pleural effusions and cultured. The purity of the cell population was… CONTINUE READING
