Acute inflammation with densely packed polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) with multilobed nu- clei (arrows). • Amplification depends upon the extent of injury and the activation of mediators such as kinins and complement components.

B. Endothelial cell sources of inflammatory mediators, including potent vasoactive substances and growth factors that modulate mesenchymal cell proliferation (Fig. 2-12B). The platelet is small (2 ␮m in diameter), lacks a nucleus, and contains three distinct kinds of inclusions: adhere to vascular endothelium, where they become activated. They then flatten and migrate from the vasculature through the endothelial cell layer into surrounding tissue. In the extravascular tissue, PMNs ingest foreign material, microbes, and dead tissue.

Maximal Life Span Has Remained Unchanged Millennia ago, the psalmist sang of a natural life span of 70 years, which with vigor may extend to 80. By contrast, it is estimated that the usual age at death of Neolithic humans was 20 to 25 years, and the average life span today in some regions is often barely 10 years more. Interestingly, the maximum life span attained is not significantly altered by a protected environment. With improved safety and sanitation, antibiotics and other drugs, and better diagnostic and therapeutic methods, the age-adjusted death rate in the United States has declined by 40% since 1970.
