Introduction

"This monograph offers the reader an integrated point-of-view about the inflammatory response related to injury, infections and tumors. This integration is based on the hypothesis that the multiple pathophysiological mechanisms making up inflammation represent the re-expression of ontogenic mechanisms during early embryo development as well as the recapitulation of ancestral phylogenetic mechanisms. The relevance of the anti-inflammatory treatments is also highlighted with respect to polytraumatic patients, advances in stem cell research, embryology and the wound healing mechanism.

Readers of this book will have the chance of gaining a unique perspective about of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the multiple inflammatory conditions. This integrative concept about inflammation can be applied in biological investigation, as well as in clinical research and translational medicine."

Preface

This eBook aims at offering an integrated point-of-view about the inflammatory response related to injuries, infections and tumors. This integration is made by considering that the multiple pathophysiological mechanisms making up inflammation represent the re-expression of ontogenic mechanisms during early embryo development as well as the recapitulation of ancestral phylogenetic mechanisms.

The many publications about inflammation have made it difficult for us to reference all of them in detail, even though some could be considered fundamental for our paper. We would like to apologize to the authors for this limitation.

We would like to thank all those people whose talents and time made this eBook a reality. We would like to thank Maria Elena Vicente for preparing the manuscript, Elizabeth Mascola for translating it into English, Pedro Cuesta and Santiago Cano, from the Complutense University Computer Unit for Teaching and Research Supporting and the librarians of the Complutense University Medical School particularly the Director Javier de Jorge, Sub-director Manuela Crego and Maria Jose Valdemoro. This eBook was supported, in part, by grants from Mutua Madrileña Research Foundation (Ref. n° PA 3077/2008 and AP5966/2009), MICINN PSI2010-19348 and with the special collaboration of the INEUROPA (Instituto de Neurociencias del Principado de Asturias).
