Inflammation is a process by which the white blood cells and biochemicals protect us from infection from foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses.Inflammation is a process by which the body's white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection with foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. It is the body's first attempt at self-protection; the aim being to remove harmful stimuli, including pathogens, irritants or damaged cells - and begin the healing process. Initially, it is beneficial but, sometimes inflammation could cause further inflammation; it can become self-perpetuating. More inflammation is created in response to the existing inflammation. The signs and symptoms of inflammation, specifically acute inflammation, show that the body is trying to heal itself.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
