bind to adhesion molecules on the walls of arteries. This in turn allows the monocytes
to enter the arterial wall, there they become inflammatory macrophages ...
Peregrine's PS-targeting antibodies highlighted in AACR Annual Meeting studies
... human anti-PS antibody, PGN635, to confirm previous observations that in vitro, anti-PS antibodies stimulate the tumor microenvironment to recruit monocytes
and other immune cells to the tumor with resulting anti-tumor effects, most likely via cell-mediated mechanisms such as antibody-dependent ...
New origin found for a critical immune response
... other chemokines or chemokine receptors. They found that mice without the Ccr2 chemokine receptor that controls the migration of inflammatory monocytes
had much lower accumulation of monocyte-derived dendritic cells and TH1 responses.
The scientists concluded that there is a blood-derived lymph ...
New discovery may lead to new class of allergy drugs
... during an allergic reaction. Through a series of laboratory procedures, they tracked changes in immune cell type and found that eotaxin inhibits monocytes
becoming dendritic cells (that find foreign invaders so other immune cells can neutralize them), resulting in more "fighter" cells being present ...

UC Davis researchers discover new drug target for inflammatory disease
... which are important first-line defenders for the immune system responsible for attacking foreign substances in the body. At elevated levels, monocytes
indicate an overresponsive immune system.
The involvement of integrins to the inflammatory process is of particular interest to study co-author ...
Biomarkers allow doctors to match therapy to patient
