  Tumour-associated macrophages (TAMs) largely express an alternatively activated (or M2) phenotype, which entails immunosuppressive and tumour-promoting capabilities. Reprogramming TAMs towards a Cited by: Available evidence proclaims macrophages as a key player in homeostasis, host defense and disease. Crucial developments in the past few years call for a re-evaluation and update of our understanding of macrophages. The present book is an endeavour that attempts provide state-of-the art knowledge of these cells in health and disease.

  Macrophages are present in all vertebrate tissues, from mid-gestation throughout life, constituting a widely dispersed organ system. They promote homeostasis by responding to internal and external changes within the body, not only as phagocytes in defence against microbes and in clearance of dead and senescent cells, but also through trophic, regulatory and repair functions.

All these mechanisms of macrophage activation can simultaneously be expanded and consolidated by using approaches in network biology. Such integration of disparate information can unravel novel and potentially safer drug targets though better understanding of the pro-inflammatory activation by: 8.   Activation or polarization states of macrophages have been classified as “classical” and “alternative” or M1 and M2. These proposed states of cells are not supported by large-scale transcriptomic data, including macrophage-associated signatures from large cancer tissue datasets, where the supposed markers do not correlate with by:

Macrophages are a key component of the innate immune system and play an integral role in host defense and homeostasis. On one hand, these cells contribute to host defence by triggering inflammation, displaying microbicidal/tumoricidal properties, regulating the activation of adaptive immunity and promoting resolution of inflammation.

Macrophage biology. Macrophages can exhibit both protective and pathogenic phenotypes in response to environmental cues. Evaluating these distinct functional phenotypes is essential for understanding host defense, auto-immunity, antitumor immunity as well as anti-inflammatory function. Macrophage activation is a complex process involving coordinate/synergistic action of signals from cytokines, chemokines, and PAMPs.

44 IFN-γ is the most potent macrophage-activating factor, inducing “inflammatory” macrophages, called “M1.” 45 Full macrophage activation requires previous priming that may be provided by low levels of IFNs.
