Omfattende gjennomgang om hvordan nevrogene betennelser fungerer fysiologisk. Nevner at betennelser ikke er problemet, men en funksjon kroppen benytter seg av for å håndtere problemer som giftstoffer og metabolsk problemer. Derfor nytter det ikke å dempe betennelsen. Man MÅ fjerne årsaken til betennelsen…
The CNS is endowed with an elaborated response repertoire termed ‘neuroinflammation’, which enables it to cope with pathogens, toxins, traumata and degeneration. On the basis of recent publications, we deduce that orchestrated actions of immune cells, vascular cells and neurons that constitute neuroinflammation are not only provoked by pathological conditions but can also be induced by increased neuronal activity. We suggest that the technical term ‘neurogenic neuroinflammation’ should be used for inflammatory reactions in the CNS in response to neuronal activity. We believe that neurogenic neuro-inflammation maintains homeostasis to enable the CNS to cope with enhanced metabolic demands and increases the computational power and plasticity of CNS neuronal networks. However, neurogenic neuroinflammation may also become maladaptive and aggravate the outcomes of pain, stress and epilepsy.
