Inflammation plays a fundamental role in nearly all chronic degenerative diseases and the contribution of pro-inflammatory cytokines in neurodegenerative, cardiovascular and bone diseases has become a major area of investigation. Lessons from cytokine biology are at the core of understanding inflammation. Blocking a cytokine with a “biological” outside the cell continues to be highly effective in treating several diseases and without organ toxicity. Several post-receptor signaling kinases are located downstream from cytokine-activated cells, which have become new targets to tame inflammation. Orally active small molecule inhibitors of intracellular signaling kinases will likely be the new frontier of anti-inflammatory agents.
The scope of the section Inflammation will be broad and include clinically relevant areas of investigation which apply to the following areas:
- Pro-inflammatory cytokines;
- The effects of innate inflammation;
- How inflammation affects the immune system;
- Cell signaling during inflammation.
