Natural Modulators of Endosomal Toll-Like Receptor-Mediated Psoriatic Skin Inflammation.

Natural Modulators of Endosomal Toll-Like Receptor-Mediated Psoriatic Skin Inflammation. J Immunol Res. 2017;2017:7807313 Authors: Lai CY, Su YW, Lin KI, Hsu LC, Chuang TH Abstract Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that can be initiated by excessive activation of endosomal toll-like receptors (TLRs), particularly TLR7, TLR8, and TLR9. Therefore, inhibitors of endosomal TLR activation are being investigated for their ability to treat this disease. The currently approved biological drugs adalimumab, etanercept, infliximab, ustekinumab, ixekizumab, and secukizumab are antibodies against effector cytokines that participate in the initiation and development of psoriasis. Several immune modulatory oligonucleotides and small molecular weight compounds, including IMO-3100, IMO-8400, and CPG-52364, that block the interaction between endosomal TLRs and their ligands are under clinical investigation for their effectiveness in the treatment of psoriasis. In addition, several chemical compounds, including AS-2444697, PF-05387252, PF-05388169, PF-06650833, ML120B, and PHA-408, can inhibit TLR signaling. Although these compounds have demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity in animal models, their therapeutic potential for the treatment of psoriasis has not yet been tested. Recent studies demonstrated that natural compounds derived from plants, fungi, and bacteria, including mustard seed, Antrodia cinnamomea extract, curcumin, resveratrol, thiostrept...

Publication date: April 2018 Source:Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Volume 100 Author(s): Mehdi Soltanzadeh-Yamchi, Mehdi Shahbazi, Saeed Aslani, Mousa Mohammadnia-Afrouzi MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNA molecules with regulatory functions on the expression of genes through binding directly to target messenger RNA (mRNA) transcripts, eventuating in gene expression suppression via translational hindrance and/or target mRNA cleavage. These molecules have been established to participate in numerous critical cellular settings, including differentiation, development, and function of immune cells. As an important suppressor...

Hedrich TCRαβ+CD3+CD4−CD8− “double negative” (DN) T cells comprise a small subset of mature peripheral T cells. The origin and function of DN T cells are somewhat unclear and discussed controversially. While DN T cells resemble a rare and heterogeneous T cell subpopulation in healthy individuals, numbers of TCRαβ+ DN T cells are expanded in several inflammatory conditions, where they also exhibit distinct effector phenotypes and infiltrate inflamed tissues. Thus, DN T cell...

In conclusion, these data suggested that rhPTH (1‑34) inhibited cell proliferation, and the secretion and expression of CXCL11 in HaCaTs. rhPTH (1‑34) also altered the expression of associated genes in the Hedgehog pathway. Therefore, rhPTH (1‑34) can be considered as a novel therapeutic agent for the treatment of psoriasis. PMID: 29436626 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The abnormal function of Tregs is relevant to the pathogenesis of several skin diseases like psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, cutaneous T-cell lymphomas, and skin cancer and is also important in rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and other auto...

Both genetic and environmental factors are responsible for the development of PsA, however little is known about the different weight of these two distinctive components in the pathogenesis of the disease. Genomic variability in PsA is associated...
