Using the Imiquimod psoriasis mouse model, researchers found that MutT homolog 1 (MTH1) inhibition diminished psoriatic histological characteristics and normalized the levels of neutrophils and T cells in skin and skin-draining lymph nodes. The inhibition abolished the expression of Th17-associated cytokines in the skin, which was in line with decreased levels of IL-17-producing γδ T cells in lymph nodes.
