Modulation of Macrophage Phenotypes by Migration Inhibitory Factors
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) was originally defined by its inhibitory effect on random migration of macrophages (Bloom and Bennett, 1966; David, 1966). In the years after its discovery a number of other biological activities have been associated with MIF activity such as a number of macrophage-activating activities (David and Remold, 1976) and interferons (Neta and Salvin, 1982).
