Hypoxia is a prominent feature of chronically inflamed tissues. This is due to elevated oxygen consumption by highly metabolically active inflamed resident cells and activated infiltrating immunocytes, as well as diminished oxygen supply due to vascular dysfunction. Tissue hypoxia can have a significant impact upon inflammatory signaling pathways in immune and non-immune cells and this can impact upon disease progression. In this review, we will discuss the relationship between tissue hypoxia and inflammation and identify how hypoxia-sensitive signaling pathways are potential therapeutic targets in chronic inflammatory disease.||Type of material:||Review||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Molecular Aspects of Medicine||Volume:||47-48||Start page:||24||End page:||34||Copyright (published version):||2015 Elsevier||Keywords:||Hypoxia; Hypoxia inducible factor; Leukocyte; Inflammation||DOI:||10.1016/j.mam.2015.12.004||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
