I have this sentence in my notes

Inflammation consists of two local reactions and one systemic reactions.

which is difficult for me to accept. Two local reactions are vascular and cellular. I think there are two systemic reactions too:

  • White blood cell response
  • Acute-phase response

How many systemic reactions there are in the inflammation?

There are two systemic reactions in inflammation too: mediated by leucocytes and acute-phase response (proteins).
