In Vitro Production and Secretion of Interleukin-1 by Human Monocytes After Surgical Trauma
Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is a cytokine produced by different cells, the principal ones being mononuclear phagocytes. This cytokine functions as a key mediator in the organism’s response to various stimuli principally modulating target cell growth and differentiation. IL-1 is part of a complex of soluble mediators forming the biological and molecular cornerstone of the lymphomonokine network that, in turn, links the immune system to other systems .
