Production of interleukin 8 (IL-8) by cord blood mononuclear cells induced by Listeria monocytogenes.

Abstract

The defective ability of human newborns to mobilize phagocytes to the site of infection led us to examine the ability of cord blood mononuclear cells to secrete interleukin-8, a major neutrophil chemotactic factor, in response to stimulation with Listeria monocytogenes. Adult or cord blood mononuclear cells were incubated with L. monocytogenes for varying… (More)
