Also called CXCL8, IL8 is a chemokine mainly produced by macrophages, T cells and neutrophils. IL8 acts as a chemoattractant for neutrophils, and promotes infiltration and activation at inflammation sites.
IL8 is involved in several cancer types due to its ability to promote angiogenesis and cell proliferation, as well as inhibit apoptosis.
Cisbio's Human IL8 kit is a homogeneous, add and read assay to measure IL8 secretion in supernatant. It offers a fast, efficient alternative to ELISA.
