Phagocytes play a key role in eliminating micro-organisms during tissue damage where they are attracted to the site of injury by a variety of chemicals (chemotaxis). This process is part of the inflammatory response.

Other examples can be cited from toxicology. Thus feeding rats and mice a relatively low dose of phenobarbitone results in hepatic increase in the activity of enzyme involved in its metabolism. If the doses are gradually increased the liver enlarges in a dose—related manner and then enlargement of centrilobular cells occurs. Upto this moment, the hepatocytes have coped with the increases— further dosing results in cloudy swelling or vacuolar dilatation and eventually nodular hyperplasia. g. peroxisome proliferators, organochlorines and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), a widely used antioxidant, behave in the same way as the group of chemicals cited.

Chapter 7 Clinical chemistry To gain a fuller appreciation of the toxicological significance of chemically induced histopathological changes in an organ, it is helpful to have an understanding of changes in the biochemistry and physiological function at the target site following chemical exposure. These biochemical changes are often reflected in deviation from normal levels of constituents derived from the target organ present either in the circulating blood or excreted in the urine. The measurement of these biochemical constituents gives useful evidential clues of the onset, progress and repair of chemical injury in the intact animal.
