The effect of glucose and advanced glycosylation end products on IL-6 production by human monocytes.

Abstract

To clarify the mechanism that causes elevation of plasma fibrinogen levels in diabetes, we examined the effect of high concentration of glucose and/or advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs) on the production of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) by human monocytes. Monocytes isolated from nine healthy volunteers were… (More)
