Therapeutic Implication of SOCS1 Modulation in the Treatment of Autoimmunity and Cancer

Discussion Suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 is an essential molecule for maintaining immune homeostasis and subverting inflammation. Disorders arising from excess inflammation or SOCS1 deficiency can be potentially treated with SOCS1 mimetics (Ahmed et al., 2015). While SOCS1 has promising potential in many disorders, it should be noted that new targets and actions of SOCS1 are still being discovered and not all the effects of this protein are beneficial in autoimmune diseases and cancer. For instance, SOCS1 degrades IRS1 and IRS2, required for insulin signaling, via the SOCS Box domain, thus, limiting its potential in type-2 diabetes (Rui et al., 2002). However, such challenges can be met by using SOCS1 mimetic peptide lacking the SOCS Box domain. As of now, SOCS1 gene therapy and mimetic-peptide biologics are active areas of research around the globe. Jakinibs have gained a great deal of attention in the last two decades for their efficacy in cancer and autoimmune diseases and we believe SOCS1 mimetics would be a great addition to the arsenal of jakinibs. Nonetheless, detailed safety and efficacy studies need to be carried before directly comparing SOCS1 mimetics to other jakinibs. Author Contributions JS and JL wrote the manuscript.

Authors: Rombauts A, Abelenda-Alonso G, Cuervo G, Gudiol C, Carratalà J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite adequate antibiotic coverage, community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) remains a leading cause of hospitalization and mortality worldwide. It induces both a local pulmonary and a systemic inflammatory response, particularly significant in severe cases. The intensity of the dysregulated host response varies from patient to patient and has a negative impact on survival and other outcomes. AREAS COVERED: This comprehensive review summarizes the pathophysiological aspects of the inflammatory response in CAP, brie...

Authors: Reissier S, Cattoir V Abstract INTRODUCTION: Streptogramins (pristinamycin and quinupristin-dalfopristin) can be interesting options for the treatment of infections due to Gram-positive cocci, especially multidrug-resistant isolates. AREAS COVERED: This review provides an updated overview on structural and activity characteristics, mechanisms of action and resistance, pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic and clinical use of streptogramins. EXPERT OPINION: The streptogramin antibiotics act by inhibition of the bacterial protein synthesis. They are composed of two chemically distinct compounds, namely typ...

Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

Authors: Mosquera J, Pedreañez A Abstract Increasing evidence supports a central role of the immune system in acute post streptococcal glomerulonephritis (APSGN), but the current view of how streptococcal biology affects immunity, and vice versa, remains to be clarified. Renal glomerular immune complex deposition is critical in the initiation of APSGN; however, mechanisms previous to immune complex formation could modulate the initiation and the progression of the disease. Initial and late renal events involved in the nephritis can also be related to host factors and streptococcal factors. In this review we ...
