Abstract

In tumor microenvironments, the macrophage population is heterogeneous, but some macrophages can acquire tumor-promoting characteristics. These tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) exhibit an M2-like profile, with deficient production of NO and ROS, characteristics of pro-inflammatory M1 cytotoxic macrophages. The results show an unexpected effect of lipoxin, which induces in TAM a change from an M2- to an M1-like profile, thereby triggering tumor cell apoptosis and down-modulating the tumor progression.
