Macrophage signaling may affect hormone resistance in prostate tumors

...l signaling from macrophages in the prostate tumor microenvironment might affect hormone resistance.Using cell biology methods, they discovered a mechanistic explanation for at least one form of resistance to androgen antagonists. "It was of particular interest for us to determine whether a macrophage/prostate canc...

Researchers reveal lung's unique innate immune system

...sed in the lung by epithelial cells. "Because the microenvironment of the alveola is a delicate one, it would be damaged if the macrophage immune system was in a constant battle-ready status," said Raz. "This could readily lead to the type of inflammation we see in autoimmune diseases of the lung such as asthma." ...
