The inflammatory process involves so many different cells and tissues, so many local and humoral mediators, and such complex regulation and interrelationships that it is impossible to encompass simply. In this volume, the second in a projected series of five, the cells and tissues involved are discussed; the first volume reviewed humoral mediators. In a brief and lucid introduction, attention is focused on the cutting edge: the role of inflammatory cells in releasing and in reacting to inflammatory mediators and regulators and the biochemical and metabolic consequences of attachment of these ligands to their specific cellular receptor sites, an area
