BACKGROUND

Interleukin 8 (IL-8) or CXCL8, Monocyte-Derived Neutrophil Chemotactic Factor (MDNCF), Neutrophil Activating Factor (NAF) and NAD-P1 is a chemokine secreted by monocytes, macrophages and endothelial cells. IL-8 chemoattracts and activates neutrophils.

The predominant form of IL-8 is a 8.4kDa protein containing 72 amino acid residues, which includes five additional N-Terminal amino-acids. IL-8 contains the four conserved cysteine residues present in CXC chemokines and also contains the “ELR” motif common to CXC chemokines that binds to CXCR1 and CXCR2.

Data indicate that IL-8 may participate in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (5) via the induction of neutrophil-mediated cartilage damage, and psoriasis. A causative involvement of IL-8 is found within a broad range of clinico-pathological conditions : adult respiratory distress syndrome, asthma, bacterial infections, bladder cancer, graft rejection and influenza infection, due to the now known biological properties of IL-8. This cytokine especially in combinations with other neutrophil activating agents, may prove helpful in the treatment of patients suffering from granulocytopenia, severe infections against which antibiotics are not effective, and immunodeficiency caused by HIV.
