Monocyte and macrophage biology: an overview.

Abstract

This review provides an overview of the current understanding of the biology of monocytes and macrophages. It focuses on four rapidly advancing areas that underpin recent conceptual advances, namely: (1) the bone marrow origins of monocytes and macrophages, (2) monocyte heterogeneity, (3) the early inflammatory consequences of tissue injury, and (4) current concepts of macrophage activation and their limitations.
