Group Description

Abscesses

"A flagship hospital is facing an investigation as patients told of their nightmare stays in tiny windowless broom cupboard treatment rooms.
Elderly women described being transferred to 12ft by 16ft store rooms in the middle of the night, where they were surrounded by blood-stained bins, bandages and shelves of medical supplies."

"Henry Cecil managed to persuade Khaled Abdulla that Twice Over's Derby hopes were too precious to risk a hard race in the Guineas, but he can still console him with a Group success at Newmarket today. Passage of Time (n.b. 2.10) never quite convinced over a mile and a half last season, when she was also held up by a throat abscess. After such a light campaign, it is good to see her back up and running for the Stan James Dahlia Stakes over just nine furlongs – a distance that could suit her ideally."

"Abscesses occur when an area of tissue becomes infected and the body's immune system tries to fight it. White blood cells move through the walls of the blood vessels into the area of the infection and collect within the damaged tissue. During this process, pus forms. Pus is the build up of fluid, living and dead white blood cells, dead tissue, and bacteria or other foreign substances."

"The organisms or foreign materials that gain access to a part of tissue kill the local cells, release toxins and trigger an inflammatory response by drawing huge amounts of white blood cells to the area and increasing the regional blood flow. The final structure of the abscess is an abscess wall that is formed by the adjacent healthy cells in an attempt to build a barrier around the pus that limits the infected material from neighboring structures."
