Endothelial Reactions

  • Burton Zweiman


Hypersensitivity reactions are frequently characterized by prominent exudation of the fluid and/or cellular components of the blood into the reaction site(s). The endothelium of normal vessels plays a very important role in the passage of both fluid and cells from the vascular compartment in normal and diseased states (reviewed by Thorgeirsson and Robertson, 1978). In essence, the endothelium in some vessels acts as a barrier that selectively regulates transfer of substances of various molecular sizes between the circulating blood and the surrounding tissues.
