they cause vasodilation causing blood to rush to the site of injure and causing edema becausethe increase in interstitial fluids because of increase metabolising of cells trying to compensate for injured cells or dead cells.

How does a local inflammation progress to systemic inflammation?

The macrophages release cytokines interleukin-1 and 6 as well as necrosis factor-alpha in response to the release of inflammatory chemical after tissue injury. These cytokines produce local vascular effects, increasing the expression of adhesion molecules and promoting vascular permeability. They then simulate the release of corticotrophin releasing hormone at the hypothalamus, resulting in the release of adrenocorticotrophic hormone from the anterior pituirary. These adrenocorticotropic hormones act at the adrenal cortex to cause cortisol release. The cytokines then simulate the production of acute phase proteins in the liver through direct action and the release of cortisol.

What are cytokines Explain their structure function?

cytokines are a number of small proteins that are secreated by a specific cell of immune system which carry signals and thus have an effect on other cells. cytokines are one type of protein that serve as messanger between cells it regulate various inflammatory responses Cytokines interact with cells of the immune system in order to regulate the body's response to disease and infection. Cytokines also mediate normal cellular processes in the body.How Cytokines WorkThe immune system is complex -- different types of immune cells and proteins do different jobs. Cytokines are among those proteins. Explaining how cytokines work is difficult. Cytokines are released by cells into the circulation or directly into tissue. The cytokines locate target immune cells and interact with receptors on the target immune cells by binding to them. The interaction triggers or stimulates specific responses by the target cells.
