Definitions for neurogenic inflammation
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word neurogenic inflammation
Neurogenic inflammation is inflammation arising from the local release from afferent neurons of inflammatory mediators such as Substance P and Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide. This process appears to play an important role in the pathogenesis of numerous diseases including psoriasis, asthma, fibromyalgia, eczema, rosacea, dystonia, multiple chemical sensitivity, and migraine. In migraine, stimulation of the trigeminal nerve causes neurogenic inflammation via release of neuropeptides including Substance P, nitric oxide, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, 5-HT, Neurokinin A and CGRP. leading to a "sterile neurogenic inflammation."
U.S. National Library of Medicine
Inflammation caused by an injurious stimulus of peripheral neurons and resulting in release of neuropeptides which affect vascular permeability and help initiate proinflammatory and immune reactions at the site of injury.
