Human pleural macrophages (PLM) have been studied in effusions, but little is known about normal human PLM. We therefore analyzed resting human PLM recovered by lavage before lobe resection from patients with a central bronchial tumor, not involving the pleura, and from patients with pulmonary chondroma, intrapulmonary hemorrhage, and pneumothorax. Analysis of surface antigens, phagocytosis capacity, and cytokine production was done in comparison to the regular CD14(++) blood monocytes and the… CONTINUE READING
