Lysosomal Hydrolases and Inflammatory Materials

  title={Lysosomal Hydrolases and Inflammatory Materials},
  author={Ira M. Goldstein},
Acute inflammatory reactions, regardless of etiology, are recognized by the presence of polymorphonuclear leukocytes at sites of tissue damage. During the past two decades, it has become appreciated that these cells are not merely innocent bystanders to the events which occur at an inflammatory site, but play an active role in the mediation of tissue injury and suppuration. Central to this role are the inflammatory substances contained within these cells, particularly those sequestered within… CONTINUE READING
