Inflammation on the balance

The word inflammation is often associated with disease even though it relates to the complex natural process we call healing. That life is a complex phenomenon is an understatement. There are layer upon layer of regulatory networks that interact with each other to keep the body’s functional balance. Genes, proteins and other biological substances, are all in a constant cross talk that determines how healthy we are at any given moment and in any given environment. There are many situations that lead to activation of inflammatory mechanisms but not all of them lead to sickness. What is inflammation? what are its component elements? under which circumstances can inflammation cause disease? can inflammation be controlled? This site is dedicated to inform the general public about inflammation and its different aspects.
