Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Inflammation refers to the defensive response of living tissue within the vascular system to inflammatory factors and local damage. When your body activates its immune system, it releases inflammatory cells. These cells attack external invaders, such as bacteria and viruses, or heal damaged tissue. Inflammatory reactions include symptoms such as redness, heat, and pain. Inflammation is the protective measure of the innate immune system to remove harmful stimuli or pathogens and promote repair, rather than targeting specific pathogens like the acquired immune system. Inflammation is also a symptom of many diseases. This Topic encourages contributors to explore the biological and clinical aspects of inflammation leading to disease causes, symptoms, and treatment. An understanding of these mechanisms can aid in the development of new therapeutic agents to eradicate these diseases. Topics welcome original research papers as well as critiques and opinion papers. Special clinical cases may also be included.
