Well today feeling quite ill so doing post in name of research lol.
After all just tad reluctant in case my doctors think am neurotic or suffering from health anxiety.
Today am writing about Exploring the full spectrum of lung macrophage and the activation.
Following lung material coughed up as seen threw my pathology microscope.
Particularly Blue Lung Macrophage or as the clinically known as Regulatory Macrophages.
Looking at LEFT of picture you can see coughed up lung tissue emphysematous lung tissue with yellow inflammation, black patches and spots that is pollution and smoking.
You will see a blue spot on picture on left THAT is what i will call a Blue Lung Macrophage or Regulatory Macrophages thats if there are such things colours.
So as your looking at picture LOOK to RIGHT and you can see close up of Blue Lung Macrophage or Regulatory Macrophages
Blue Lung Macrophage or Regulatory Macrophages are part of your innate immunity.
Care and repair SOUNDS great.
And as i have noticed my lung inflammation as not been as yellow or as bad as was when viewed under microscope.
Great news really bit of lung TLC.
But the Blue Lung Macrophage or Regulatory Macrophages have a dark side.
One of tumour formation infiltration, necrosis.
Granuloma, Boop or Diffuse Interstitial Pneumonitis and Sarcoidosis when the Lung Macrophage go wrong.
Are Macrophage really blue and do they exist like what we are looking at.
Macrophages display remarkable plasticity and can change their physiology in response to environmental cues.
These changes can give rise to different populations of cells with distinct functions. In this Review we suggest a new grouping of macrophage populations based on three different homeostatic activities—host defence, wound healing and immune regulation.
We propose that similarly to the three primary colours, these three basic macrophage populations can blend into various other ‘shades’ of activation.
