On the other hand ongoing, unresolved chronic inflammation can be compared to slow burning fire, this type of inflammation results in permanently hyped up immune activity. Chronic inflammation has been recognised as a pathological feature of a wide range of chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and even depression.
