Document Abstract:
The inflammatory response is the normal response of the body to physical damage or injury, such as cuts and burns or bacterial or parasitic invasion. Inflammation is triggered by the release of chemicals known as mediators from damaged cells, especially mast cells and basophils. One of the most important of these mediators is histamine. Others include prostaglandins and interleukins. This review looks at the effect of histamine in the inflammatory response.
