Abstract

The relationships between tumor cells and macrophages during tumor growth have been the subject of many investigations. The aims were essentially the following: a) a better understanding of the mechanism(s) leading to the accumulation of macrophages within a growing tumor and b) the understanding of the mechanism(s) responsible for the macrophages’ acquisition of peculiar properties (strictly resembling those which occur during the process of activation) in tumor-bearing subjects.
