  • Major
  • Of major significance in the development of neurogenic inflammation is the transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1 (TRPV1) receptor, a non-selective cation channel found predominantly in primary sensory neurons. (nus.edu.sg)
  • acute inflammation
  • While acute inflammation starts quickly and generally disappears in a few days, chronic inflammation can last for months or years as a result of failure to eliminate the cause and minor, repeated exposure to the agent. (draxe.com)
  • Acute inflammation is the initial response of the body to harmful stimuli and is achieved by the increased movement of plasma and leukocytes (especially granulocytes) from the blood into the injured tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • Physical: Burns Frostbite Physical injury, blunt or penetrating Foreign bodies, including splinters, dirt and debris Trauma Ionizing radiation Biological: Infection by pathogens Immune reactions due to hypersensitivity Stress Chemical: Chemical irritants Toxins Alcohol Psychological: Excitement Acute inflammation is a short-term process, usually appearing within a few minutes or hours and begins to cease upon the removal of the injurious stimulus. (wikipedia.org)
  • It involves a coordinated and systemic mobilization response locally of various immune, endocrine and neurological mediators of acute inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Acute inflammation of the lung (usually caused in response to pneumonia) does not cause pain unless the inflammation involves the parietal pleura, which does have pain-sensitive nerve endings. (wikipedia.org)
  • The process of acute inflammation is initiated by resident immune cells already present in the involved tissue, mainly resident macrophages, dendritic cells, histiocytes, Kupffer cells and mast cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because of its increase due to acute inflammation, this protein is classified as an acute-phase reactant. (wikipedia.org)
  • anti-inflammatory
  • The reason I find the cytokine hypothesis of depression so compelling is that it fits right in with my belief that doing everything we can to contain unnecessary inflammation -- by adhering to an anti-inflammatory diet, for example -- is the best overall strategy for attaining optimum health. (huffingtonpost.com)
  • Cytokines
  • Researchers have theorized that since substance P which appears at day five of induced magnesium deficiency, is known to stimulate in turn the production of other inflammatory cytokines including IL-1, Interleukin 6 (IL-6), and TNF-alpha (TNF╬▒), which begin a sharp rise at day 12, substance P is a key in the path from magnesium deficiency to the subsequent cascade of neuro-inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • From basic science to clinical trials, we cover every aspect of research into inflammation, the role it plays in human ageing and age-related inflammatory disease as well as the response to trauma. (birmingham.ac.uk)
  • Diabetes
  • The JDRF/Wellcome Trust Diabetes and Inflammation Laboratory (JDRF/WT DIL), centred in the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research, is a multi-disciplinary research programme within the department of Medical Genetics at the University of Cambridge. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood vessels
  • Exactly how inflammation plays a role in heart attack and stroke remains a topic of ongoing research," added Deepak Bhatt, M.D. "It appears that the inciting event in many heart attacks and some forms of stroke is buildup of fatty, cholesterol-rich plaque in blood vessels. (heart.org)
  • Fibrinous inflammation is often difficult to resolve due to blood vessels growing into the exudate and filling space that was occupied by fibrin. (wikipedia.org)
  • protein
  • The Mas-related G protein-coupled receptors (Mrgpr) family as well as transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) and protease activated receptor 2(Par2) have important roles in itch and inflammation. (springer.com)
  • Serous exudate (sometimes classified as serous transudate) is usually seen in mild inflammation, with relatively low protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • pain
  • Instead of taking a medication to reduce joint pain or lower cholesterol, we would be better served by reducing inflammation in the body. (draxe.com)
  • Attenuation of early phase inflammation by cannabidiol prevents pain and nerve damage in rat osteoarthritis. (nih.gov)
  • Transdermal cannabidiol reduces inflammation and pain-related behaviours in a rat model of arthritis. (nih.gov)
  • Cannabinoid Delivery Systems for Pain and Inflammation Treatment. (nih.gov)
  • tissue
  • The function of inflammation is to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury, clear out necrotic cells and tissues damaged from the original insult and the inflammatory process, and initiate tissue repair. (wikipedia.org)
  • Too little inflammation could lead to progressive tissue destruction by the harmful stimulus (e.g. bacteria) and compromise the survival of the organism. (wikipedia.org)
  • cholesterol
  • Cholesterol-lowering medications called statins appear to reduce arterial inflammation, but whether that's from cholesterol reduction or something else is being debated, Bhatt said. (heart.org)
  • Arnett said it's critical to control the risk factors (cigarette smoking, high blood pressure and LDL [bad] cholesterol) that can lead to inflammation. (heart.org)
  • research
  • Our research focuses on understanding the drivers of age-related inflammation, how this contributes to age-related disease and developing innovative ways to improve health in old age. (birmingham.ac.uk)
  • The University of Birmingham's annual Agewell event took place in Birmingham city centre on Monday 10 September, led by Professor Janet Lord, Director of the Institute of Inflammation and Ageing and the MRC-Arthritis Research UK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research. (birmingham.ac.uk)
  • It is the official journal of the European Histamine Research Society and the International Association of Inflammation Societies. (wikipedia.org)
  • dietary
  • How to control inappropriate inflammation is a big subject, but dietary choices are perhaps the most important way to keep excessive cytokine production in check. (huffingtonpost.com)
  • free
  • Not only will it take you to a different place physically and emotionally, it will also set you on the road to living an active gout and inflammation free life. (lulu.com)
