AIMS Monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1) and interleukin 8 (IL-8) are small, inducible proteins with chemotactic activity for specific subsets of leucocytes. The possibility that MCP-1 and IL-8 are produced in tissues involved by Hodgkin's disease, thus contributing to the inflammatory-type background of the lesion, was investigated. METHODS The presence of RNA transcripts for MCP-1 and IL-8 was investigated in biopsy samples of 24 cases of Hodgkin's disease, 17 non-Hodgkin's malignant… CONTINUE READING
