A variety of cytokines and other compounds are produced in the human adipose tissue and may have autocrine functions in the adipose tissue as well as be involved in the complications seen in association with obesity. Because it recently has been reported that interleukin 8 (IL-8), through its effects on the macrophage and endothelial cell, may be involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, we found it of interest to investigate whether IL-8 is produced in human adipose tissue in vitro… CONTINUE READING
