BACKGROUND Polarization of macrophages by specific micro-environmental conditions impacts upon their function following subsequent activation. This study aimed to systematically validate robust phenotypic markers for in vitro polarized human macrophages in order to facilitate the study of macrophage subsets in vivo. METHODS Human peripheral blood… CONTINUE READING
