Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Cancerous tumors trick myeloid cells, an important part of the immune system, into perceiving them as a damaged part of the body; the tumors actually put myeloid cells to work helping them grow and metastasize (spread).
The lack of responsiveness of fibroblasts to TRAIL might be due to the lack of TRAIL ligand (as a consequence of decreased expression and/or myeloid cell recruitment into the lungs, as revealed by decreased CD33 cells), internalization of the TRAIL receptors, and increased presence of IL13 or other intrinsic differences between IPF and normal lung fibroblasts.

During tumor development, myeloid cells accumulate massively within the tumor and regulate inflammatory and immune responses [74].
Therefore, a high index of suspicion and recognition of immature myeloid cells associated with the reactive cells are required to establish the diagnosis of myeloid sarcoma.

This t(9;22) translocation results in the formation of the BCR-ABL fusion gene, which codes for a novel protein tyrosine kinase (TK) that is constitutively activated and therefore leads to increased proliferation of myeloid cells, decreased apoptosis and adhesion, and genetic instability of the leukaemic cells.
The most predominant feature of CML is severe leukocytosis with the entire spectrum of myeloid cell development appearing in the peripheral blood.
