AIMS AND BACKGROUND Macrophages are heterogeneous cells with extensive functional plasticity; they can change their functional profiles repeatedly in response to environmental changes anywhere between their extreme phenotypical programs (labeled as M1 and M2 polarization, respectively). In terms of antitumoral immune response, M1 macrophages are considered(More)
Immunity plays an important role in the prognosis and the natural development of cancer. Previous studies have shown that the presence of tumor in the body could modify the immune response leading to immunosuppression. The aim of this study was to evaluate the immunological changes of patients with larynx squamous cell carcinoma undergoing potentially(More)
OBJECTIVE Altered immune, inflammatory, and angiogenesis responses have been noticed in head and neck cancer, and many of these responses have been associated with a poor clinical outcome. The objective of this study was to evaluate several immune mediators in the sera of patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the larynx undergoing curative surgery(More)
Cell culture is one of the major tools for oncology research, being an excellent system in which to study the biochemistry and molecular biology associated with individual cancer types and to understand cancer cell physiology. Progress in understanding the biology of any type of carcinoma has been impeded by the inability to culture adequately malignant(More)
