The last few years have seen the accumulation of compelling evidence that apoptosis (programmed cell death) plays a major role in promoting resolution of the acute inflammatory response. Neutrophils are constitutively programmed to undergo apoptosis, which limits their pro-inflammatory potential and leads to rapid, specific, and non-phlogistic recognition by macrophages and semi-professional phagocytes. Similar mechanisms have been implicated in clearance of eosinophils, lymphocytes, and… CONTINUE READING
