To examine donor cell survival and host immune reaction, pig bone marrow‐derived mesenchymal stem cells were labeled with CM‐DiI, loaded onto gelatin sponge, and transplanted into 5‐mm mandibular defects of immunocompetent and T cell‐deficient athymic rats.

Prior to light activation, intravenously administered liposomes, composed of just two lipid reagents, freely circulated and successfully evaded innate immune cells present in the fish.
Researchers report fundamental changes in biodistribution and brain bioavailability of macrophage-based formulations upon different routes of administration: intravenous, intraperitoneal, or intrathecal injections.

Scientists explored the unique property of the apolipoprotein A-I binding protein that enhanced cholesterol efflux from endothelial cells and macrophages to thereby limited angiogenesis and inflammation to tackle anti-VEGF resistance in choroidal neovascularization.
Scientists found that persistently elevated CCL2 levels in combination with proinflammatory monocyte infiltration of periodontal tissues were closely related to diabetes-associated periodontitis.

5-aminolevulinic acid-mediated sonodynamic therapy inhibited neointima formation without affecting re-endothelialization, increased blood perfusion, decreased the content of macrophages, proliferating smooth muscle cells and collagen but increased elastin by day 28.

A metabolomics comparison of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb)-infected macrophages indicated that ornithine and imidazole were two top-scoring metabolites in Mtb-infected Kupffer cells and that acetylcholine was the top-scoring in Mtb-infected mouse alveolar macrophages..

Scientists showed that exosomes produced by naive bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDM) contained anti-inflammatory microRNA-99a/146b/378a that were further increased in exosomes produced by BMDM polarized with IL-4.
