In particular, substances released from the peripheral terminals of small diameter primary afferent fibers and from sympathetic postganglionic nerve (SPGN) terminals have been implicated in several of the major components of acute inflammation (e.g., vasodilatation and plasma extravasation) as well as in the regulation of tissue injury in an inflammatory disease model… CONTINUE READING
