Nuclear IL-33/SMAD Signaling Axis Promotes Cancer Development in Chronic Inflammation

Interleukin (IL)‐33 was highly expressed in the skin and pancreatic epithelial cells in chronic inflammation, leading to a markedly repressed Smad6 expression as well as dramatically upregulated p‐SMAD2/3 and p‐SMAD1/5 in the epithelial cells.

A Double-Edged Sword of Immuno-Microenvironment in Cardiac Homeostasis and Injury Repair

In adaptive immunity, effector T cells, especially Th17 cells, lead to the pathogenesis of cardiac fibrosis, including the distal fibrosis and scar formation. Cardiomyocytes protectors, Treg cells, inhibit reduce the inflammatory response, then directly trigger the regeneration of local progenitor cell via IL-10.

Schlafen 11 is a Novel Target for Mucosal Regeneration in Ulcerative Colitis

An in vitro model using human colon organoids was established by 60 weeks of inflammatory stimulation. The key gene for mucosal injury caused by long-term inflammation was identified by microarray analysis. An in vivo model was established by xenotransplantation of organoids into mouse colonic mucosa.

From Inflammation to Colitis-Associated Colorectal Cancer in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Pathogenesis and Impact of Current Therapies

Scientists present an overview of the current knowledge of colitis-associated cancer (CAC) in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients, focusing on the role of inflammation in the pathogenesis of CAC and the potential for IBD drugs to interfere with the process of carcinogenesis by reducing the inflammatory process or by modulating pathways directly involved in carcinogenesis.

Location, Location, Location: How the Tissue Microenvironment Affects Inflammation in RA

Emerging evidence indicates an important role for the tissue microenvironment in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Each tissue is made up of cells surrounded and supported by a unique ECM. These complex molecular networks define tissue architecture and provide environmental signals that programme site-specific cell behaviour.
