OBJECTIVE IL-8 is thought to be the principal chemokine responsible for neutrophil activation and tissue infiltration in patients with Behçet's disease (BD). In various studies serum levels of IL-8 were reported to be increased. METHODS IL-8 mRNA was purified from both peripheral whole blood samples and separated lymphocytes, granulocytes and monocytes of patients with BD and compared to that from healthy (HC) and disease controls. IL-8 sequences were revealed by PCR amplification using… CONTINUE READING
