Increased permeability of the vascular endothelium is a critical part of pathological processes such as inflammation and wound healing. While several cytokines have been shown to increase endothelial permeability, none has been shown to reduce it. We studied the effect of interferon-alpha 2b on the barrier function of bovine retinal capillary endothelial cells in vitro and found that it increased the electrical resistance of the monolayers (treated cells 211 +/- 6 ohm.cm2, untreated 109 +/- 14… CONTINUE READING
