Microglial cells are resident cells of the CNS and are implicated as regulators and effectors of immune responses which occur within this compartment. The precise role of parenchymal microglia remains speculative because distinctions between these cells, perivascular "microglia," and blood-derived monocytes/macrophages are not well defined. The current study describes the phenotype and function of microglia immediately upon isolation from the non-inflamed adult human CNS and the phenotypic… CONTINUE READING
