    I'm a bit confused, how does inflammation occur at a cellular level versus a molecular level? What would the difference be between the two explanations?

    I suppose on a molecular level, you could talk about the molecules involved in inflammation, e.g. prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and other signalling molecules.

    On a cellular level you could mention the signs of inflammation, e.g. dolor (pain), rubor (redness), calor (heat), tumor (swelling), and functio leasa (loss of function).

    Hope this helps!
