Inflammation is important in many diseases, yet it is hard to find current information on the pertinent cellular and molecular mechanisms of inflammation. This book is a current and authoritative review of various aspects of inflammation in mammalian organisms. Basic principles, including regulation by cytokines, lipid mediators, reactive oxygen species and leukocyte recruitment are followed by chapters on integrative aspects of inflammation, such as neutrophil extracellular traps, sepsis and granulomatous inflammation.
