Examining the effects of macrophage populations on cancerous tumor growth.
The most abundant immune cell types of the tumor microenvironment macrophages recruited tumor-eluted factors and the interplay between tumor and immune cells is an emerging field of research with potential for novel treatment strategies.
Versican and Tumor-Associated Macrophages Promotes Tumor Progression and Metastasis in Canine and Murine Models of Breast Carcinoma
Versican and TAMs are suggested as attractive targets for breast cancer therapy due to their links to a pro-inflammatory and pro-angiogenic state in the primary tumor.


Regulation of macrophage function in tumors: the multifaceted role of NF-kappaB.
Evidence is outlined for the use of elegant transgenic murine tumor models in which modification of single components of the NF-kappaB signaling pathway has been shown to regulate the pro-tumor repertoire of TAMs to reconcile the various views that have emerged recently over the exact role of NF- kappaB.
The role of tumor-associated macrophages in tumor vascularization
The potential of targeting pro-angiogenic TAMs, or reprograming TAMs toward a tumoricidal and angiostatic phenotype, to promote normalization of the tumor vasculature to enhance the outcome of cancer therapies is discussed.
Macrophage regulation of tumor responses to anticancer therapies.
Distinct role of macrophages in different tumor microenvironments.
The evidence for differential regulation of TAMs in these microenvironments is discussed and an overview of current attempts to target or use TAMs for therapeutic purposes is provided.

Tumor-associated macrophages press the angiogenic switch in breast cancer.
It is found that tumor-associated macrophages that are recruited to the tumor just before malignant conversion are essential for the angiogenic switch, establishing a causal linkage to explain well-documented clinical correlations between macrophage, microvessel density, and poor prognosis in breast tumors.
Identification and manipulation of tumor associated macrophages in human cancers
This review focuses on recent reports discriminating the type of infiltrating macrophages in human tumors and the environmental cues present that steer their differentiation.
