A variety of chemokines and chemokine receptors have been detected in neoplastic tissues [1, 4]. We will focus our attention primarily on the C-C chemokine ligand 5 (CCL5), also known as Regulated upon Activation, Normal T-cell Expressed, and Secreted.
Chemokines: chemerin, monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1), macrophage inhibitory protein-1 alpha (MIP-1α), regulated upon activation, normally T cell expressed and secreted.

[3] In the mouse model of azoxymethane-induced colon carcinogenesis, Rimonabant significantly decreased aberrant crypt foci (ACF) formation, which precedes colorectal cancer. [4] Rimonabant (10 mg/kg by gavage) is fed for 2 weeks to 3-month-old male obese Zucker rats as an impaired glucose tolerance model and for 10 weeks to 6-month-old male obese Zucker rats as a model of the metabolic syndrome. RANTES (Regulated upon Activation, Normal T cell Expressed, and Secreted.
At both the mRNA and protein levels of expression, ICAM-1 ligation was found to upregulate ICAM-1’s own expression in a positive-feedback loop. In addition, the expression of RANTES mRNA and protein was also found to be upregulated by ICAM-1 ligation. RANTES, or Regulated upon Activation Normal T-cell Expressed and Secreted.
