Hello Flowers and Happy Christmas !

I'm looking for advice on the activation of  human isolated monocytes to
macrophages. I've read of lidocaine, LPS,PMA,GM-CSF  treatment	 (etc etc
etc !) but not sure what the difference is, or in fact	how TRUE activated
Macs differ from isolated monocyes.

Any advice or even advice on the loaction of   source material would be
GREATLY appreciated

Many thanks to all
