Maturation of macrophages from peripheral blood monocytes in Kawasaki disease: immunocytochemical and immunoelectron microscopic study.

Abstract

Kawasaki disease (KD) is regarded as a cytokine-associated disorder. Despite intensive investigation into the etiology of KD, this remains unclear, although monocytes and macrophages are thought to play an important role. We examined peripheral blood monocytes using a monoclonal antibody, PM-2K, which recognizes mature macrophages but not monocytes. This… (More)
