Comprehensive Approach Slide 2 Inflammation and repair Inflammation is fundamentally a protective response Inflammation and repair may be potentially harmful The inflammatory response consists of two main components, a vascular reaction and a cellular reaction Slide 3 Inflammation and repair Neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, lymphocytes, basophils, and platelets. Mast cells, fibroblasts, resident macrophages and lymphocytes. The extracellular matrix Slide 4 Inflammation and repair Acute inflammation Chronic inflammation The vascular and cellular reactions of both acute and chronic inflammation are mediated by chemical factors Slide 5 Inflammation and repair Historical Perspective: (Latin, inflamatio, to set on fire)Latin The word "inflammation" goes back at least to ancient Egyptian times. Shem- e-met " : Inflammation and ends in a symbol called a determinative, a "flaming brazier". This brazier is a device heated with fire.

In its traditional clinical description, inflammation has four characteristics: calor (heat), rubor (redness), tumor (swelling and dolor (pain).pain Slide 23 Inflammation and repair Slide 24 Inflammation Overview of Cellular Mechanisms Involved in Acute Inflammation Chemical Mediators of Acute Inflammation Examples of Acute Inflammatory Responses Differences Between Acute and Chronic Inflammation Examples of Chronic Inflammation Discussion of Potential Roles of Nutrition in Inflammation Slide 25 Acute Inflammation Acute inflammation is a rapid response to an injurious agent that serves to deliver mediators of host defenseleukocytes and plasma proteinsto the site of injury. Acute inflammation has three major components: (1) alterations in vascular caliber that lead to an increase in blood flow; (2) structural changes in the microvasculature that permit plasma proteins and leukocytes to leave the circulation; and (3) emigration of the leukocytes from the microcirculation, their accumulation in the focus of injury, and their activation to eliminate the offending agent Slide 26 Acute inflammatory reactions are triggered by a variety of stimuli: Infections (bacterial, viral, parasitic) and microbial toxins Trauma (blunt and penetrating) Physical and chemical agents (thermal injury, e.g., burns or frostbite; irradiation; some environmental chemicals) Tissue necrosis (from any cause) Foreign bodies (splinters, dirt, sutures) Immune reactions (also called hypersensitivity reactions) Slide 27 Acute Inflammation When a host encounters an injurious agent, such as an infectious microbe or dead cells, phagocytes that reside in all tissues try to get rid of these agents. At the same time, phagocytes and other host cells react to the presence of the foreign or abnormal substance by liberating cytokines, lipid messengers, and the various other mediators of inflammation. Some of these mediators act on endothelial cells in the vicinity and promote the efflux of plasma and the recruitment of circulating leukocytes to the site where the offending agent is located. Slide 28 Acute Inflammation - continued As the injurious agent is eliminated and anti-inflammatory mechanisms become active, the process subsides and the host returns to a normal state of health. If the injurious agent cannot be quickly eliminated, the result may be chronic inflammation. The recruited leukocytes are activated by the injurious agent and by locally produced mediators, and the activated leukocytes try to remove the offending agent by phagocytosis. Slide 29 Slide 30 The vascular phenomena of acute inflammation are characterized by increased blood flow to the injured area, resulting mainly from arteriolar dilation and opening of capillary beds induced by mediators such as histamine. Increased vascular permeability results in the accumulation of protein-rich extravascular fluid, which forms the exudate. Plasma proteins leave the vessels, most commonly through widened interendothelial cell junctions of the venules. The redness (rubor), warmth (calor), and swelling (tumor) of acute inflammation are caused by the increased blood flow and edema. Slide 31 Circulating leukocytes, initially predominantly neutrophils, adhere to the endothelium via adhesion molecules, transmigrate across the endothelium, and migrate to the site of injury under the influence of chemotactic agents. Leukocytes that are activated by the offending agent and by endogenous mediators may release toxic metabolites and proteases extracellularly, causing tissue damage. During the damage, and in part as a result of the liberation of prostaglandins, neuropeptides, and cytokines, one of the local symptoms is pain (dolor). Slide 32 Changes in vascular flow and caliber begin early after injury and develop at varying rates depending on the severity of the injury. The changes occur in the following order: Vasodilation. Increased blood flow is the cause of the heat and the redness. Vasodilation is induced by the action of several mediators, notably histamine and nitric oxide on smooth muscle. Increased permeability of the microvasculature. Stasis. The loss of fluid results in concentration of red cells in small vessels and increased viscosity of the blood. Slide 33 Slide 34 A hallmark of acute inflammation is increased vascular permeability leading to the escape of a protein-rich fluid (exudate) into the extravascular tissue. The loss of protein from the plasma reduces the intravascular osmotic pressure and increases the osmotic pressure of the interstitial fluid. Together with the increased hydrostatic pressure owing to increased blood flow through the dilated vessels, this leads to a marked outflow of fluid and its accumulation in the interstitial tissue. The net increase of extravascular fluid results in edema. Slide 35 Slide 36 Leukocytes Rolling Within a Venule Slide 37 Neutrophil Pavementing (lining the venule) Slide 38 Slide 39 Slide 40 Table 32.

Types of Acute Inflammation. TypeFeaturesCommon Causes Classic typeHyperemia; exudation with fibrin and neutrophils; neutrophil leukocytosis in blood. Bacterial infections; response to cell necrosis of any cause. Acute inflammation without neutrophils Paucity of neutrophils in exudate; lymphocytes and plasma cells predominant; neutropenia, lymphocytosis in blood. Viral and rickettsial infections (immune response contributes). Allergic acute inflammation Marked edema and numerous eosinophils; eosinophilia in blood. Certain hypersensitivity immune reactions Serous inflammation (inflammation in body cavities) Marked fluid exudation.Burns; many bacterial infections. Catarrhal inflammation (inflammation of mucous membranes) Marked secretion of mucus.Infections, eg, common cold (rhinovirus); allergy (eg, hay fever). Fibrinous inflammation Excess fibrin formation.Many virulent bacterial infections. Necrotizing inflammation, hemorrhagic inflammation Marked tissue necrosis and hemorrhage.Highly virulent organisms (bacterial, viral, fungal), eg, plague (Yersinia pestis), anthrax (Bacillus anthracis), herpes simplex encephalitis, mucormycosis. Membranous (pseudomembranou s) inflammation Necrotizing inflammation involving mucous membranes. The necrotic mucosa and inflammatory exudate form an adherent membrane on the mucosal surface. Toxigenic bacteria, eg, diphtheria bacillus (Corynebacterium diphtheriae) and Clostridium difficile. Suppurative (purulent) inflammation Exaggerated neutrophil response and liquefactive necrosis of parenchymal cells; pus formation. Marked neutrophil leukocytosis in blood. Pyogenic bacteria, eg, staphylococci, streptococci, gramnegative bacilli, anaerobes.
