Primary human keratinocytes play a key role in the inflammatory response by releasing a range of cytokines.

Cytokine Release

Keratinocytes play a key role in the inflammatory process through the secretion of cytokines.

In vitro, the secretion of inflammatory cytokines is measured with and without active ingredient treatment following challenge with either UV or lipopolysaccharide (LPS), a key component of bacterial cell walls.

Cytokines evaluated include IL-1, IL-6, or IL-8.
