Both CC- and CXC-chemokines are known to be potent leucocyte activators and chemoattractants and play important roles in inflammatory responses. However, chemokine response to bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) infection remains incompletely defined. In this study, we investigated human CC- [macrophage-derived chemokine (MDC), monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1, macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-1alpha and eosinophil chemoattractant activity (eotaxin)] and CXC-interferon-inducible protein… CONTINUE READING
