Inflammation represents the coordinated immune response to infection, trauma and injury.
When appropriately controlled, inflammation ensures competent host defence and prevents excessive damage of the affected tissue or organ structure.
In chronic inflammatory diseases, this process is disrupted and instead of offering protection, drives disease progression.
