Interleukin (IL)– 8 induction in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) (n = 5) using live bacteria. IL-8 concentration measured in cell culture supernatants of PBMCs were after exposure to live high hemolytic (HH)/low encapsulation (LC) and low hemolytic (LH)/high encapsulation (HC) bacteria. Horizontal lines indicate the median.
