1.What precipitates the inflammatory process? Cellular injury 2. What are the first 5 steps of the inflammatory process? Mast cell degranulation, activation of the coagulation cascade, activation of the kinin cascade, release of chemotactic factors, and the activation of the complement cascade. 3.What is the function of complement? Functions include bacterial lysis, vasodilation and increased vascular permeability, triggers mast cell degranulation, chemotaxis, and opsonization. 4.What is kinin turned into? Bradykinin 5.What is bradykinin responsible for? Pain, chemotaxis, and increased vascularpermeability and vasodilation. 6.What system does the coagulation cascade have a role in activating? Kinin system 7.What factor activates kinin? Factor XII (Hageman factor) 8.What is the function of the coagulation cascade in the inflammatory process?
