Introduction. Human monocytes are heterogeneous and plastic cell population with the ability to undergo phenotypic and functional changes as a response to a stimulus from a local microenvironment. Our aim was to determine the potential of human monocytes to differentiate into different cell populations depending on two different cytokines (IL-4 and...
