This Annals volume presents scholarly reviews of recent immunology research on myeloid cells and inflammation. The topics covered include the origin of macrophages and the journey from the myeloid stem cell in the bone marrow to the macrophage in tissues; macrophages and dendritic cells in the progression of atherosclerosis; the role of lymph node sinus macrophages in host defense; the heterogeneity of myeloid-derived suppressor cells in human cancers; regulation of immune responses by neutrophils; and the mechanism of NLRP3 inflammasome activation.
