"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860), German philosopher

Description

Lysosome granules

Enzymes

Granulocytes

These cells contain a large variety of enzymes which perform a number of functions. Granules can be classified as either specific or azurophilic depending upon the contents, and are able to break down a number of substances, some of which may be plasma-derived proteins which allow these enzymes to act as inflammatory mediators.

Histamine

Vasoactive amine

Mast cells, basophils , platelets

Stored in preformed granules, histamine is released in response to a number of stimuli. It causes arteriole dilation and increased venous permeability.

IFN-?

Cytokine

T-cells, NK cells

Antiviral, immunoregulatory , and anti- tumour properties. This interferon was originally called macrophage-activating factor, and is especially important in the maintenance of chronic inflammation.

IL-8

Chemokine

Primarily macrophages

Activation and chemoattraction of neutrophils , with a weak effect on monocytes and eosinophils .

Leukotriene B4

Eicosanoid

Leukocytes

Able to mediate leukocyte adhesion and activation, allowing them to bind to the endothelium and migrate across it. In neutrophils , it is also a potent chemoattractant , and is able to induce the formation of reactive oxygen species and the release of lysosome enzymes by these cells.

Nitric oxide

Soluble gas

Macrophages, endothelial cells, some neurons

Potent vasodilator, relaxes smooth muscle, reduces platelet aggregation, aids in leukocyte recruitment, direct antimicrobial activity in high concentrations.

Prostaglandins

Eicosanoid

Mast cells

A group of lipids which can cause vasodilation , fever, and pain.

TNF-a and IL-1

Cytokines

Primarily macrophages

Both affect a wide variety of cells to induce many similar inflammatory reactions: fever, production of cytokines, endothelial gene regulation, chemotaxis , leukocyte adherence, activation of fibroblasts . Responsible for the systemic effects of inflammation, such as loss of appetite and increased heart rate.
