Correlation between microparticle numbers and IL-8 concentrations. Correlations are shown between IL-8 produced by FLS in response to total microparticles (a), granulocyte-derived microparticles (b) and monocyte-derived microparticles (c). Note that data obtained with FLS in response to onefold and threefold concentrated microparticle suspensions are included.
