Sixteen years have handed because the first Leiden convention on Mononuclear Phagocytes. That first assembly resulted in new nomenclature, i. e. , the Mononuclear Phagocytes process (MPS), which used to be released within the Bulletin of the area future health association (R. van Furth, et aI. , Bull. WHO, 1972, forty six: 845-852). The paradigm of the MPS has the good thing about being even more constant than the Reticuloendothelial approach (RES) (L. Aschoff, Ergebn. hotel. Med. Kinderheilk. 1924, 26:1), simply because cells with related features might be labeled within the similar class. The essence ota new idea is, based on Popper, that it has to be liable to falsification. This has been tried numerous occasions for the MPS through those that adhere to the RES. besides the fact that, in biology nobody will be yes of fact. Any conception has to be in response to experimental observations and/or theoretical give some thought to­ ations and either can be offered in this kind of means that others can attempt to refute it, then or later. One could have a theoretical or a realistic choice for a concept which at a given time is considered very likely truc, yet later it can be proven to be fake. In different phrases, what we found in this quantity is considered real at this second, yet others could give some thought to it as now not real and take a look at to disprove it. Controversies frequently stimulate new research.
