Abstract: Leukocyte emigration from the blood to sites of inflammatory response involves the sequential interaction of specific adhesion molecules expressed by both the leukocyte and the endothelium. Leukocytes roll on adhesion molecules, undergo activation, become tightly adherent to the endothelium, and then transmigrate the vessel wall to enter the peripheral tissues. Many of the molecules that mediate these adhesive events have now been defined, and the combinatorial diversity of the interactions involved in these steps may explain the specificity in leukocyte treatment.
