Monocarboxylate transporter 1 (MCT1) participates in the transport of lactate to facilitate metabolic reprogramming during tumor progression. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) are also involved in the inflammatory adaptation of the tumor microenvironment (TME). This study aimed to determine the correlation between metabolite changes and the polarization of macrophages in the TME. We demonstrated that the expression of CD163 on macrophages was significantly higher in breast cancer tissues than in normal tissues, especially in the HER2 subtype, although it was not statistically associated with recurrence-free survival (RFS). The presence of MCT1+ and CD163+ macrophages in the invasive margin was significantly correlated with decreased RFS. A significant correlation existed between MCT1 and CD163 expression in the margin, and high infiltration of MCT1+CD163+ macrophages into the margin predicted rapid progression and poor survival outcomes for breast cancer patients. These data suggested that MCT1 at least partially promoted the alternative polarization of macrophages to inhibit antitumor immunity, and blocking this interaction may be a promising method for breast cancer therapy.
