The chemokines are a superfamily of small proteins secreted primarily by leukocytes and related by a conserved four-cystein motif. In the present study we investigated the serum levels of macrophage inflammatory protein 1 alpha (MIP-1 alpha) and interleukin-8 (IL-8). MIP-1 alpha is a neutrophil chemotactic protein important in acute and chronic inflammation. Recent studies demonstrated that MIP-1 alpha may also act as potent inhibitor of hemopoetic stem cell proliferation, which may be… CONTINUE READING
