Several recent publications suggest that these discrepancies may reflect differences in the number, grade, stage, and size of tumors included in each study, all of which varied considerably across the studies. The lack of consensus both within and between tumor types may also be related to the diverse approaches used to assess the infiltrates. For example, in two publications by Chen and colleagues, tumor-associated macrophage density correlated with poor prognosis in NSCLC, but macrophages within the tumor and those in the adjacent stroma were counted together (13, 14).
