Acute inflammatory responses

acute inflammation and mediator systems (eg, histamine, prostaglandins, bradykinins, eosinophilic basic protein, nitric oxide)

vascular response to injury, including mediators

principles of cell adherence and migration (eg, ECAMs, selectins, leukocytic diapedesis, and rolling)

microbicidal mechanisms and tissue injury (eg, defensins)

clinical manifestations (eg, pain, fever, leukocytosis, leukemoid reaction, chills)

Chronic inflammatory responses (eg, tumor necrosis factor)

Reparative processes

wound healing, repair: thrombosis, granulation tissue, angiogenesis, fibrosis, scar/keloid formation

regenerative process
