What is Pathology - What draws mononuclear inflammatory cells to an inflammatory site? Macrophages are blood-borne monocytes that leave blood vessels in response to the same chemotactic cues that attract neutrophils. Monocytes, on the other hand, arrive at the site of inflammation 24 to 48 hours later than neutrophils because they are less mobile.
