Causes of Inflammation
- Microbial infections
One of the commonest causes of inflammation is microbial infection. Viruses lead to death of individual cells by intracellular multiplication.
Bacteria release specific exotoxins - chemicals synthesised by them which specifically initiate inflammation—or endotoxins, which are
associated with their cell walls. Additionally, some organisms cause immunologically-mediated inflammation through hypersensitivity reactions.
Parasitic infections and tuberculous inflammation are instances where hypersensitivity is important.
- Hypersensitivity or Allergic reactions
A hypersensitivity reaction occurs when an altered state of immunological responsiveness causes an inappropriate or excessive immune reaction
which damages the tissues. The types of reaction are classified here, but all have cellular or chemical mediators similar to those involved
- Physical agents
Tissue damage leading to inflammation may occur through physical trauma, ultraviolet or other ionising radiation, burns or excessive cooling
- Irritant and corrosive chemicals
Corrosive chemicals (acids, alkalis, oxidising agents) provoke inflammation through gross tissue damage. However, infecting agents may release
specific chemical irritants which lead directly to inflammation.
- Tissue necrosis
Death of tissues from lack of oxygen or nutrients resulting from inadequate blood flow (infarction) is a potent inflammatory stimulus. The
edge of a recent infarct often shows an acute inflammatory response.

Osumex 10-P Test is a non-invasive analysis to detect the presence of bilirubin,
blood, glucose, ketone, leukocyte (white blood cells), nitrite, pH, protein, specific gravity and urobilinogen in urine..
The test is a very good early and preliminary detection of health problems with:
- kidney function
- liver function
- acid-base balance
- bacteriurea - bacteria infection of the bladder
- uncontrolled and possible onset of diabetes mellitus (type-2)
- carbohydrate metabolism
Whilst the test is not conclusive but it is a good preventative measure so that the user can consult his or her professional health care
practitioner to follow up on positive results before it is too late.
Each Osumex 10-P Test kit consists of a test-tube, a strip contained in a pouch, colour chart to check results of the test and an insert
on usage and information. Please see images below.
