    Abstract : Macrophages are cells of the innate immune system that can be found in large quantities in cancer tumors and affect cancer progression by regulating growth and invasiveness of cancer cells. There are two main phenotypes of macrophages denoted M1 and M2. READ MORE

  2. 2. Local Immune regulation in human pregnancy : with focus on decidual macrophages

    Abstract : During pregnancy, the woman carries a fetus partly foreign to her immune system, because of the expression of paternal antigens. Despite this, the fetus is normally tolerated and not rejected, as is often the case with organs in allogeneic transplantations. READ MORE

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide with approximately 1.150.000 new cases each year and accounting for over 400.000 deaths per year. READ MORE

  4. 4. Crosstalk between colorectal cancer cells and tumour-associated macrophages

    Author : Yuan Zhang; Malmö Cellpatologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CD47; tumour-associated macrophage; matrix metalloproteinase; cell migration; colon cancer;

    Abstract : Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of death from cancer worldwide. People suffering from inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohns’ disease and ulcerative colitis, are at an increased risk of developing CRC. The development of CRC is highly influenced by the tumour microenvironment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring mechanisms regulating the heterogeneity of Tumor-Associated Macrophages

    Author : Majken Wallerius; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Accumulation of macrophages in the tumor microenvironment is associated to poor prognoses in most human cancers. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) represent a heterogeneous and plastic population of cells that contribute to tumor growth, metastatic dissemination, angiogenesis, and immune suppression. READ MORE
