Mphi1 and Mphi2 can be re-polarized by Th2 or Th1 cytokines, respectively, and respond to exogenous danger signals.

Abstract

Macrophages (Mphi) represent a dynamic cell population that develops and operates within a changing microenvironment. In parallel to Th1/Th2 cells, primary Mphi may undergo classical (Mphi1) or alternative (Mphi2) activation. Here, we investigated whether Mphi1/Mphi2 may be re-polarized by a secondary stimulation by Th1 or Th2 cytokines or by exogenous… (More)
