Theoretically, vascular inflammation can be observed in various stages: stasis of blood due to increase concentration of cells in the blood, leukocytes margination and adhesion along the endothelium, and transmigration across the cell via phagocytosis [46].
In the current study IONPs were not functionalized by specific ligands and MNRd accumulation in lung capillaries may be attributed to nanorods tumbling behavior under flow, resulting in decreased floating speed and margination towards the vessel wall, and thus increasing chances for MNRd adhesion to endothelial cells [50].
FPIES often results in a systemic inflammatory response not seen in other non-IgE-mediated food allergies and can present with a profound leukocytosis, margination of leukocytes, and a markedly elevated C-reactive protein [1].
