- Two unique human decidual macrophage populationsBrandy L Houser
Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
J Immunol 186:2633-42. 2011..Moreover, these populations each secrete both proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines that may contribute to the balance that establishes fetal-maternal tolerance. Thus, they do not fit the conventional M1/M2 categorization...
