In addition, granulocytosis, following injury or infection, is associated with an increased production of proinflammatory and hemopoietic cytokines that are regulated in peripheral tissues by various factors, including Myeloperoxidase (MPO), Adenosine Deaminase (ADA), and cholinergic system such as Acetylcholine (Ach) (1).
