    Background: S100A9 protein (myeloid-related protein MRP14, also referred to as calgranulin B) is a reliable marker of inflammation, an important proinflammatory factor of innate immunity and acts as an additional antimicrobial peptide in the innate immune system. Evidence indicates that S100A9...

    Macrophage-activating lipopeptide-2 (MALP-2) is a potent inducer of proinflammatory cytokine secretion by macrophages, monocytes, and dendritic cells. MALP-2 was reported to be involved in natural killer (NK) cell activation and ensuing tumor rejection. However, the mechanism of MALP-2-mediated...

    Stimulation of monocytes by interaction of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) with Fc gamma receptors (FcγRs) results in the activation of various monocyte effector functions. In the present investigation we show that the anti-Lewis Y (LeY) anti-tumour mAb ABL 364 and its mouse/human IgG1 chimaera...
