Question #10The cells that are associated with allergic disorders and the inflammation associated with immediate hypersensitivity reactions are known as what?(MARK ALL THAT APPLY)a.Macrophagesb.Eosinophilsc.Mast cellsd.Neutrophilse.Basophils
Correct Answer = B, C, E•You can find this answer on page 51•Eosinophils, basophils, and mast cells produce lipid mediators and cytokines that induce inflammation. They are particularly important in inflammation associated with immediate hypersensitivity reactions and allergic disorders.•Neutrophils and macrophages are WBCs that respond to inflammation and destroy invading bacteria. They do not induce inflammation.
Question #11Inflammation can be either acute or chronic. The immune system is thought to play a role in chronic inflammation and may be one of the reasons chronic inflammation may persist for days to months to years. Why is the risk of scarring and deformity greater in chronic inflammation than it is in acute inflammation?
Question #12During the acute inflammatory response there is a period called the transient phase, where there is increased vascular permeability. What is considered the principal mediator of the immediate transient phase?
