Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) are dangerous molecules that are denatured, disorganized molecular complexes or released from damaged or dying cells to activate the innate immune system by interacting with pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). Although DAMPs contribute to host defense, they promote pathological inflammatory responses. Especially, many DAMPs activate inflammasomal pathways.

This Special Issue collects current research on the role of DAMPs in inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, osteoarthritis, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and cancer. We also welcome discussions on DAMPs as biomarkers and therapeutic targets for these diseases.
