What are macrophages?

Answer :

Macrophages, a kind of white blood cell, are the first cells at the scene of infection, and they get there from your blood. these are cells in areolar tissues that destroy microbes and foreign particles.Not only do macrophages keep the body clean of debris and invaders, they also call for backup when an infection is too big for them to handle alone.
