The common response to infection is infiltration of the affected tissue by inflammatory cells. It is now recognized that the epithelium plays a crucial role in this immunological process by producing an array of proinflammatory cytokines including interleukin-8, tumour necrosis factor-alpha, monocyte chemotactic protein-1, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, extractable nuclear antigen-78 and others. The response of the intestinal epithelium to bacterial pathogens is particularly… CONTINUE READING
