If acute inflammation condition is not resolved it leads to the condition of chronic inflammation. Some of the features of acute inflammation also lead to chronic inflammation such as increase in blood flow and increase in capillary permeability. Accumulations of the white blood cells are also observed. In an infected tissue neutrophils are the ones which are recruited first by the body but soon they are replaced by the macrophages and the lymphocytes. Thus these are the primary cells in case of chronic inflammation. The functions of macrophages are to phagocytize the pathogens at the site of inflammation.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
