Macrophages in Diabetes Mellitus: A Review on Understanding of Macrophage Function

Title variants
Languages of publication
Diabetes mellitus (DM) causes millions of deaths all over the world. Immune system contains macrophages that play very important role in DM. Excessive secretion of different cytokines can induce the DM development. Diabetes mellitus (DM) also affect the function of macrophage. We review the important findings regarding the role of macrophage in DM. This review may emphasize future direction towards development of novel immune-modulatory therapeutic intervention.
