The effect of somatostatin-14 (SST) and somatostatin analog D-Phe-Cys-Phe-D-Trp-Lys-Thr-Cys-Thr-NH2 (RC-102) on migration inhibition of human leukocytes induced by cardiac antigen or phytohemagglutinin (PHA) was investigated. Both SST and RC-102 augmented the migration inhibition, thus indicating the enhanced formation or action of the leukocyte migration inhibiting factor (LMIF). This finding provides additional evidence for the immunomodulatory action of somatostatin.
