    Introduction. Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that was first identified in in a study by Bloom and Bennett (), which reported that T lymphocytes released a factor able to inhibit the random movement of MIF gene is localized on chromosome 22q and codes for a transcript bp in length. “The clinical relevance of this finding still needs to be determined,” Dr. Oktay said. Counteracting the Effects of Chemotherapy Finally, the research team investigated whether an experimental drug called rebastinib could counteract the effects of paclitaxel on TMEM activity.

    The many faces of macrophages in lung cancer Within the past decade, the role of the immune system in the development and progression of cancers has become increasingly appreciated. With this recognition, there has been a renewed interest in the development of immunotherapies, aimed at increasing a patient’s inherent anti-tumor defenses.   Cell fusion is a natural process in normal development and tissue regeneration. Fusion between cancer cells and macrophages generates metastatic hybrids with genetic and phenotypic characteristics from both maternal cells. However, there are no clinical markers for detecting cell fusion in clinical context. Macrophage-specific antigen CD expression in tumor cells is reported in breast . Inflammation is a recognised hallmark of cancer that substantially contributes to the development and progression of malignancies. In established cancers, there is increasing evidence for the roles that local immune response and systemic inflammation have in progression of tumours and survival of patients with cancer. This knowledge provides an opportunity to target these inflammatory.

    Macrophages are critical mediators of inflammation and important regulators of developmental processes. As a key phagocytic cell type, macrophages evolved as part of the innate immune system to engulf and process cell debris and pathogens. Macrophages produce factors that act directly on their microenvironment and also bridge innate immune responses to the adaptive immune system. Macrophages as cancer therapeutic targets Tumor-associated macrophages. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) have properties consistent with alternatively activated macrophages [].They produce cytokines like IL and TGF-β [].The polarization of macrophages recruited to a tumor site, or any other tissue, is highly dependent on the cytokines present. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) play an important role in growth, progression and metastasis of tumors. In non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), TAMs' anti-tumor or pro-tumor role is not determined. Macrophages are polarized into M1 (with anti-tumor function) and M2 (with pro-tumor function) forms. This study was conducted to determine whether the M1 and M2 macrophage densities in NSCLC are.
