Humoral Control of Monocyte Production During Inflammation
Particles injected into the peritoneal cavity of mice induce an inflammatory exudate with a gradual increase in the number of macrophages, the latter deriving from circulating monocytes (van Furth & Cohn 1968). The number of blood monocytes increases concomitantly, which is brought about by an increase in the production of monocytes in the bone marrow based on a decrease in the cell-cycle time of the promonocytes and an increase in the number of promonocytes (van Furth 1978).
