Abstract

It has been shown that the presence of a tumor suppresses chemo-tactic responses of macrophages (1–3). Pulmonary alveolar macrophages function as primary effector cells against microorganisms that reach the lungs, yet their function in the control of primary and/or metastatic tumors in man is poorly understood.
