Abstract

In the skin variable concentrations of IL-6 are a result of local production by Langerhans cells (LC), keratinocytes and endothelial cells (1), as well as of posthepatic accumulation (2). Although LC precursors leaving the capillaries must migrate through the dermis, it remains unclear how far IL-6 influences the development and function of LC.
