The Two Distinct Phases of Inflammatory Response in the Dog’s Knee Joint
The inflammations caused by various agents may be quite different from each other in the details of the mechanisms involved, even though the gross features of the swelling, redness and pain may not be ostensibly different. In this chapter we will demonstrate some differences among agents and will attempt to explain them to some extent. The agents used were bradykinin, serotonin, Hageman factor, ellagic acid, carrageenan, sodium urate, and cellulose sulfate. The findings permit us to set up certain hypotheses about the general nature of the acute inflammatory reaction, particularly the role of the neutrophil.
