Sample text

Some of these chemicals are suspended in plasma (clotting factors, complement, and a group of chemicals called kinins that increase pain sensation and the permeability of capillaries). Platelets, mast cells, and basophils release histamine and serotonin, which also promote vasodilation and capillary permeability. Injured cell membranes release platelet-activating factors and arachidonic acid metabolites that then form prostaglandins and leukotrienes—more inflammatory chemicals. The study of proinflammatory chemicals continues to reveal new secrets about this remarkable and intricate process.

Damaged endothelial cells and mast cells release a host of chemicals that increase the permeability of blood vessel walls, reinforce capillary dilation, attract platelets, and slow blood flow away from the area, limiting the risk of deeper penetration of pathogens. Vasodilation is short-lived with minor injuries, but it may last for several days with more severe injuries. In some situations the vascular reaction to tissue damage is delayed for several hours; this is the case with sunburns, for instance.

Monocytes are large, mobile white blood cells. They are sensitive to chemical signals that call them to sites of injury or potential infection. Monocytes can become permanently fixed macrophages. They are typically involved in later stages of inflammation: they help clean up cellular debris to prepare the area for healing. • Lymphocytes. Some lymphocytes are involved in the resolution of inflammation. They work with macrophages to clean up dead and damaged cells and to help form scar tissue and new blood vessels.
