Cell adhesion has an essential role in neutrophil recognition of sites of inflammation, migration through endothelium and extracellular matrix, and activation to full effector function at these sites. Adhesion molecules on the neutrophil involved in these events include members of the selectin, integrin, and immunoglobulin superfamilies. Inhibition of neutrophil adhesion holds the promise of interrupting idiopathic inflammation in a variety of diseases, but also can increase susceptibility to… CONTINUE READING
