Interleukin 8 (IL-8 /CXCL8) is secreted primarily by macrophages and monocytes. It is one of the key mediators for inflammatory responses. IL-8 is a strong chemotractant for neutrophils and monocytes promoting activation of these cells by binding to two cell surface receptors, CXCR1 and CXCR2. It is also a strong angiogenic agent and is considered to play a role in the pathogenesis of bronchiolitis.
