Cytokine kinetics were examined in milk and in afferent and efferent lymph of the supramammary lymph node after intramammary infusion of endotoxin from Escherichia coli. Cows were sampled 0, 2 and 4h after infusion (p.i.). Neutrophils appeared in afferent lymph 2h p.i., and in efferent lymph and milk 4h p.i. The milk contained high concentrations of interleukin-8 (IL-8) at 2 and 4h p.i. IL-8 was also found in lymph, but at lower concentrations. The tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha… CONTINUE READING
