The present study was performed to characterize the immunologic potential of interstitial macrophages (INT) in comparison with alveolar macrophages (AL). The data showed that AL, compared with INT, have a more efficient phagocytic potential. In addition, they have a strong microbicidal activity and secrete large amounts of reactive oxygen radicals, nitric oxides, TNF, and IFN on appropriate stimulation. They also exert strong tumoricidal and parasiticidal activities. In contrast, INT are more… CONTINUE READING
