Abstract

Chemokines, by modulating inflammation process, could contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus (DM), and kidney disease. Chemokine CXC motif ligand 5 (CXCL5) is one of the inducible chemokines that may be involved in various inflammatory diseases. Given the bidirectional promiscuity characteristics of the chemokine system, the mechanistic roles of CXCL5 should be further explored in each specific disease. In this article, we sought to review the recent evidence on the differential effects of CXCL5 and their potential mechanisms in cardiovascular disease, DM, and renal disease individually. Future study is still required to verify if CXCL5 could be a novel therapeutic target in these diseases.
