by D. Neil Granger, Elena Senchenkova
Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2010
Number of pages: 98

All segments of the microvasculature (arterioles, capillaries, and venules) exhibit characteristic phenotypic changes during inflammation that appear to be directed toward enhancing the delivery of inflammatory cells to the injured/infected tissue, isolating the region from healthy tissue and the systemic circulation, and setting the stage for tissue repair and regeneration.
