Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 155)


Macrophages play an important role in several aspects of immune regulation, as verified by the articles within this volume. In recent years it has become clear that macrophages play a pivotal regulatory role by influencing the rates of proliferation of multiple cell types. This article is a review focusing on the products secreted by macrophages which alter cell growth.
