Long term cultures of human monocytes in vitro. Impact of GM-CSF on survival and differentiation.


In vitro differentiation of human monocytes (Mo) provides large amounts of mature and functionally competent macrophages (M phi) which may be used as potentially powerful anticancer agents for adoptive immunotherapy. Granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) was evaluated for its ability to influence long term cultures of Mo-derived M phi… (More)
