Effect of environmental pollutants on the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines by normal human dermal keratinocytes.

Abstract

The effect of the environmental pollutants, diesel exhaust particles (DEP) and formaldehyde (FA), on the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (interleukin (IL)-1alpha, IL-1beta, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and IL-8) by normal human dermal keratinocytes (hKCs) was investigated. Normal hKCs were incubated with various concentrations of DEP (0.4, 0.8… (More)
