The rather narrow variation in the number of mononuclear phagocytes in blood and tissues under steady-state conditions attests to a fine tuning mechanism regulating monocyte production and distribution. Some factors, such as CSF, prostaglandins, and lactoferrin, which are thought on the basis of in vitro findings to control homeostasis of the mononuclear… CONTINUE READING
