The action of exogenous etiologic agents is usually mediated in part, or amplified by endogenous mediators which very often exert biphasic, i.e., damaging and protective effects. The pathogenetic pathways involve direct/indirect chemical injury, vascular damage and its consequences, and acute or chronic inflammatory processes following… CONTINUE READING
