Part of the Inflammation: Mechanisms and Treatment book series (FTIN, volume 4)


The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the effect of rabbit anti-rat macrophage serum (AMS) on the oedema and cell migration induced by a preparation of M. tuberculosis. Inflammation induced by M. tuberculosis is known to recruit macrophages, and anti-macrophage serum was found to affect macrophages in vitro as well in vivo, and is becoming a valuable tool to study their various functions1–4.
