What is Pathology - What exactly is the purpose of inflammation?
Inflammation's main goal is to eliminate or neutralise the injury's cause and repair the consequences of injury. The ultimate purpose of an inflammatory response to bacteria, for example, is to eliminate the bacteria and/or neutralise their harmful effects by limiting their spread within the body. The inflammatory response is also necessary for the repair of bacteria-damaged or destroyed tissues. Not all inflammations have such a clear goal, and in other cases, the beneficial effects of inflammation are eclipsed by unintended negative consequences.
