Tumour related inhibition of macrophage chemotaxis in patients with colon cancer.
The chemotactic migration in vitro of peripheral blood, intestinal mucosal, and mesenteric lymph node mononuclear cells has been assessed in patients with colorectal carcinoma. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells of patients exhibited normal chemotaxis. For control patients with non-malignant, non-inflammatory intestinal disease, the chemotaxis of mucosal mononuclear cells was similar to that of autologous peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The chemotactic migration of mucosal mononuclear cel...Expand abstract
