Hi, Chris.

IL-8 can be produced from activated T cells, LPS-stimulated mononuclear 
phagocytes, fibroblast, epithelial cells and platelets.
I check some cytokines in a certain disease which I have studies for a long 
My meaning of time delay is not a simple sequential time gap.
In A certain disease, cytokine is relased witout mRNA expression.
I suspect several possibilities.
One is the different source of production.
Second is preformed cytokine.
So, I recommand to check cytokine level with mRNA expression, 
Send me mail with any different opinion or additional comment.
Thanck you and Good luck to you.
