Brief description Inflammatory processes are normally regarded as being initiated and maintained through the activities of white blood cell macrophages. We propose to explore the role of lymphocyte delivery of protease molecules termed granzymes in inflammation. Our preliminary data has demonstrated a novel paradigm involving amplification of septic shock through the activity of granzymes. We now wish to exlore these interactions at a cellular and biochemical level as a means to better understand inflammation.
