Biochem/physiol Actions

Interleukin 8 (IL-8) stimulates neutrophils to produce lysosomal enzymes along with myeloperoxidase, α-mannosidase and β-glucuronidase< IL-8 regulates the metastasis and angiogenesis processes during cancer development. IL-8 is responsible for epithelial–mesenchymal transition which plays an important role in providing cancer cells the mobility to invade other neighbouring cells, thereby contributing to metastasis.

Physical form
