Macrophage activation phenotypes in type 1 diabetes pathogenesis and therapy : Master thesis

Detta är en Magister-uppsats från KTH/Skolan för bioteknologi (BIO)

Sammanfattning: Macrophages are an important key effector cell in the immune system which can practically be found in every tissue. Macrophages have for a long time been considered a population of cells only responsible for pro-inflammatory responses and anti-microbial activities. But over the past decade, many have come to realize the amazing plasticity of macrophages in response to different stimulations. The anti-microbial and pro-inflammatory macrophage is known as classically activated macrophages but newly discovered phenotypes have been revealed named wound-healing macrophages and regulatory macrophages. Through systematic screening we have identified an inducible macrophage activation state which has both wound-healing and regulatory capabilities activated by the novel cytokine combination IL-4/IL-10 with or without TGF-β.
