Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry can be used to assess expression of multiple tissue antigens in solid-phase biological specimens, such as tissue sections, cytospins, or cells grown on slides. Expand

Cutting Edge: Immunological Consequences and Trafficking of Human Regulatory Macrophages Administered to Renal Transplant Recipients
Regulatory macrophages (M regs) were administered to two living-donor renal transplant recipients. Both patients were minimized to low-dose tacrolimus monotherapy within 24 wk of transplantation andExpand

IFN-γ-induced iNOS expression in mouse regulatory macrophages prolongs allograft survival in fully immunocompetent recipients.
Mouse monocytes exposed to macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) and interferon-γ (IFN-γ) were driven to a novel suppressor phenotype. These regulatory macrophages (M regs) expressed markersExpand

Differentiation of in vitro-modified human peripheral blood monocytes into hepatocyte-like and pancreatic islet-like cells.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Adult stem cells provide a promising alternative for the treatment of diabetes mellitus and end-stage liver diseases. We evaluated the differentiation potential of human peripheralExpand

Macrophages Driven to a Novel State of Activation Have Anti-Inflammatory Properties in Mice1
Recurrent episodes of inflammation underlie numerous pathologies, notably those of inflammatory bowel diseases. In this study, we describe a population of macrophages in a novel state of activationExpand

Novel GM-CSF signals via IFN-γR/IRF-1 and AKT/mTOR license monocytes for suppressor function.
Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) controls proliferation and survival of myeloid cells including monocytes. Here, we describe a time-dependent licensing process driven byExpand

Now or never? The case for cell-based immunosuppression in kidney transplantation.
By exploiting mechanisms of immunological regulation against donor alloantigen, it may be possible to reduce the dependence of kidney transplant recipients upon calcineurin inhibitor-basedExpand
