Inflammatory reactions and chemotactic factors

Annals of Allergy
Z Kim


Inflammatory reactions are mediated by a large number of chemical substances called chemical mediators, including chemotactic factors, which are released by immunologic as well as non-immunologic mechanisms. Chemotactic factors which act indirectly on target tissue can not only enhance inflammatory reactions (NCF-C) but may also eliminate the reactions (ECF-A).
