Researchers from The Salk Institute have described a signaling pathway that sets off an unusual, autophagy-dependent cell death mechanism as a fail-safe for cells that have evaded senescence mechanisms. The scientists found a tumor suppression mechanism mediated by telomere signaling, which activated an innate immune response through mitochondrial and telomere complexes to eliminate cells with shortened telomeres.
Scripps Research Institute and Shangpharma Innovation have divulged cyclic GMP-AMP synthase (MB21D1; cGAS) inhibitors reported to be useful for the treatment of autoinflammatory interferonopathy, autoimmune and neurological disorders.
Inmagene Biopharmaceuticals Co. Ltd. has obtained IND approval from the FDA for IMG-008, the company's novel long-acting antagonistic humanized monoclonal antibody that specifically targets human IL-36 receptor (IL-36R) to treat auto-inflammatory diseases.
Researchers from Hefei Industrial Pharmaceutical Institute Co. Ltd. presented the discovery and preclinical evaluation of novel multifunctional inhibitors as potential anti-inflammatory and analgesic agents.
Researchers from Wenzhou Medical University and affiliated organizations have reported the discovery and preclinical evaluation of novel anti-inflammatory compounds. Synthesis and optimization of a new series of 1-(4-(benzylsulfonyl)-2-nitrophenyl) derivatives resulted in the identification of compound [I] as the lead candidate.
