What is Pathology - When it comes to cell injury and inflammation, what's the difference?
In isolated single cells, monocellular organisms (e.g., amoeba), or cells grown in tissue culture, cell damage can be caused. Inflammation, on the other hand, cannot be generated in monocellular organisms or in vitro grown cells. An inflammatory response is a reaction to cell injury that can only occur in multicellular organisms' vascularized tissues. However, the same noxious stimuli that produce cell injury can also generate inflammation.
