Entamoeba histolytica stimulates interleukin 8 from human colonic epithelial cells without parasite-enterocyte contact.


BACKGROUND & AIMS The mechanisms involved in the initiation of host mucosal inflammation in amebiasis are not fully understood. This study characterized the effect of Entamoeba histolytica components on interleukin 8 (IL-8) gene expression in human colonic cells. METHODS Colonic cells were stimulated with amebic proteins, secretory components, or live… (More)
