TitlePaper, 'Note on some changes in the blood of the general circulation consequent upon certain inflammations of an acute local character' by C S [Charles Scott] Sherrington
DescriptionSherrington writes: 'In result of an acute inflammatory process of even limited local extent alterations, that have been long recognised, take place in the blood of the general circulation. These alterations are (1) hyperinosis, or increased yield of fibrin ; (2) leucocytosis, or numerical increase of leucocytes. Of all the phenomena of inflammation the most fundamental, apart from the local degeneration of the involved tissue, is, without doubt, abnormal exudation of intravascular fluid. The latter process must produce changes in the blood in general circulation, as well as in that in the vascular area locally disturbed. It is these general hsemic changes incident on local inflammation with which my experiments deal, especially with certain features of the inflammatory leucocytosis.'
