The acute inflammatory response is the body’s first system of alarm signals that are directed toward containment and elimination of microbial invaders. Uncontrolled inflammation has emerged as a pathophysiologic basis for many widely occurring diseases in the general population that were not initially known to be linked to the inflammatory response, including cardiovascular disease, asthma, arthritis, and cancer. To better manage treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of these wide-ranging diseases, multidisciplinary research efforts are underway in both academic and industry settings. The purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to the cell types, chemical mediators, and general mechanisms of the host’s first response to invasion. World-class experts from institutions around the world have written chapters for this introductory text. The text is presented as an introductory springboard for graduate students, postdoctoral Fellows, medical scientists, and researchers from other disciplines who wish to gain an appreciation and working knowledge of current cellular and molecular mechanisms fundamental to inflammation.
Editorial Reviews: Review “A comprehensive volume that brings together many important and contemporary aspects of inflammation. The book will serve as an excellent guide to the current understanding of how “inflammation” contributes in such diverse ways to disease processes, and to the resolution of the same through natural processes or clinical treatment.” Andrew Mellor, Quarterly Review of Biology Book Description Provides an introduction to the cell types, chemical mediators, and general mechanisms of the host’s first response to invasion.

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐Quite informative, easy to understand, not overloaded with picture. This book really helped me with my revision for my masters.
⭐This text provides an excellent review of the state of the art, and although it will go out of date fairly swiftly, it is certainly the best text currently available. The information will not become ‘incorrect’ just might get overtaken in this rapidly moving field.
