  • Acute Inflammation
    • 5 - Migration of neutrophils
      • Neutrophils  remove pathogens by phagocytosis
    • 2 - Increased vascular permeability
      • Allowing cells, fluid and proteins to move into the interstitial spaces
    • 3 - Activation of endothelial cells
      • The linings of the blood vessels increase their expression of adhesion moelcules
    • 4 - Production of chemotactic factors
      • Soluble molecules which attract and guide the movement of cells such as phagocytes in the inflammatory response
    • 1 - Vasodilation
      • Refers to the widening of blood vessels
