Inflammation refers to the defensive response of living tissue with a vascular system to inflammatory factors and local damage. When your body activates the immune system, it releases inflammatory cells. These cells attack infection from external pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses. Inflammation is a protective mechanism for the body. However, in relation to disease, certain factors can activate inflammatory responses, such as bad diet, sedentary lifestyles, environmental factors, etc. Ongoing inflammation or chronic inflammation can lead to tissue damage and the development of diseases. In this Special Issue papers are presented in relation to the links between inflammation and disease.
