The CNS inflammatory response is regulated by hepatic chemokine synthesis, which promotes leukocytosis and facilitates leukocyte recruitment to the site of injury. To understand the role of the individual cell populations in the liver during the hepatic response to acute brain injury, we selectively depleted Kupffer cells (KC), using clodronate-filled liposomes, and assessed the inflammatory response following a microinjection of IL-1beta into the rat brain or after a compression injury in th...Expand abstract
