Neuroinflammation is the inflammation associated with the nervous system. Inflammation is triggered to ward of the injurious stimulus in the central nervous system and to initiate healing process to protect the cells and the function of the brain. Microglial cells are the innate immune cells that respond to the cues such as infections, traumatic brain injury, toxic metabolites, spinal cord injury, autoimmunity etc. Chronic neuroinflammation considered as cause for neurodegenerative diseases which results in the sustained activation of glial cells and recruitment of immune cells to the brain. Whereas acute neuroinflammation is followed by injury to central nervous system characterized by endothelial cell activation, tissue edema and platelet deposition.
