Tumors from LL rats recruit more macrophages. (a) Gating strategy employed to identify CD43+ cells in LD and LL tumors and percentage of CD43+ cells (n = 3–4/group). Analysis was done on whole lysates from tumors removed from LD and LL rats on day 13. (b) Immunohistochemistry staining of LD and LL tumors against an anti-macrophage antibody F4/80. Arrows indicate inflammatory loci. (c) Quantification of inflammatory loci in the grid area. Data are the mean ± SEM (n = 5–6/group) *p = 0.0173 indicates statistical difference from LD; Mann-Whitney test
