BACKGROUND Hepatic ischemia-reperfusion results in a neutrophil-dependent liver injury. The process of neutrophil recruitment and activation in this injury is at least partially dependent on the induction of chemokines, such as cytokine-induced neutrophil chemoattractant (CINC) and macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2) in rats. In the liver, parenchymal… CONTINUE READING
