Default CMI Immune Response

Hi can someone please help me?

It's mentioned intracellular pathogens stimulate production of TH1 Cells. Which stimulate CMI. Macrophages are induced to become more effective intracellular killers of bacteria they ingest. Cytotoxic T Cells kill virus-infected cells by recognition of peptides presented in the MHC Class 1 molecule.

Now when they mention macrophages do they mean the monocytes that are in tissues such as Kuffer, Langerhans, Neuroglia, etc? OR do the macrophages go from the cell to the extravascular space?

Sorry just wanted to clear my concepts.

Kupffer,Langerhans,Neuroglia they are nothing but macrophages

Kupffer - Macrophages present in liver
Langerhans- Macrophages present in skin
Neuroglia - Macrophages in brain

In myeloid stem cell lineage one of the cell type is monoblast rest are erythro,myelo,megakaryo/BLAST
Monoblast - Monocyte - Macrophage

I hope this helps you

good explanation, also to add something:
MONOCYTE is on the BLOOD
once squeezes thru the blood vessels to reach target tissue MACROPHAGE
