Interleukin 8 (IL-8) is a chemotactic factor that attracts neutrophils, basophils and T-cells during an inflammatory process. It is released from a variety cell types such as monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils and intestine, kidney, placenta and bone marrow cells in response to inflammation. It is involved many cellular processes including cell proliferation, tissue remodeling and angiogenesis. IL-8 mediates its effects by binding to two heterotrimeric G protein-coupled receptors, CXCR1 and CXCR2. Given that it is a major mediator of inflammation, IL-8 was markedly increased in infants diagnosed with perinatal infection.
