Despite the voluminous literature on naturally occurring vasoactive agents the problem of mediators of inflammation in man remains unsolved. Bradykinin, serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) and histamine are known to be highly potent in producing inflammation in human skin (Greaves and Shuster, 1968). However, direct evidence that these agents play any part in human inflammation is lacking.
