Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 21)


With numerous experiments the role of kinins has been studied in inflammation with increased vasopermeability, for instance after turpentine injection into pleural cavity, injection of kaolin, serotonin, carrageenin or polyvinylpyrolidon into rat paws and after thermal injury or exposure to ultra-violet irradiation (for review:Bonta, 1969; Kellermeyer and Graham, 1968). obviously the significance of kinins is limited to local physiological and/or pathophysiological conditions (Creutzfeld, 1969; ofstad, 1970).
