Phytic Acid Modulates In Vitro IL-8 and IL-6 Release from Colonic Epithelial Cells Stimulated with LPS and IL-1β

Abstract

Phytic acid (PA), a major fiber-associated component of wheat bran and legumes, is physiologically present in the human large gut. The aim of this study was to examine the role of PA in immunologic function of intestinal epithelial cells by analyzing its effect on interleukin (IL)-8 and IL-6 secretion by colonocytes and its role in the response of these… (More)
