Five cell lines were established from four undifferentiated carcinomas and one squamous cell carcinoma of the thyroid. The levels of several kinds of cytokines were measured in the conditioned media of these cell lines by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Interleukin-6 (IL-6) was produced by four of the five cell lines, interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1 alpha) by three cell lines, and granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) by two cell lines. The mRNA of IL-1 alpha or IL-6 was detected… CONTINUE READING
