    ..Thus, signal II agents initiate inflammation by promoting necrosis-driven IL-1β release, suggesting that IL-1β represents an inducible danger signal. ..

    ..Thus, antagonists of neutrophil-derived proteases may have therapeutic potential for blocking activation of IL-36 family cytokines in inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis. ..

    ..Thus, in addition to their classical role as phagocytes, neutrophils play an important immunoregulatory role through deployment of their granule proteases into the extracellular space to process multiple IL-1 family cytokines. ..

    ..These data suggest that similar to other sensors of cell stress, such as p53, Parkin has cytoprotective (mitophagy) or cytotoxic modes (apoptosis), depending on the degree of mitochondrial damage. ..
  5. Cullen S, Martin S. Fas and TRAIL 'death receptors' as initiators of inflammation: Implications for cancer. Semin Cell Dev Biol. 2015;39:26-34 pubmed publisher
    ..Here we will discuss death-independent outcomes of Fas and TRAIL signaling and their implications for cancer. ..

    ..Inhibition of neutrophil-derived proteases may therefore have therapeutic benefits in psoriasis. ..

    ..2016), indicate that this virus provokes divergent modes of cell death, including apoptosis and necroptosis, via the nucleic acid sensor, DAI. ..
  8. Kearney C, Martin S. An Inflammatory Perspective on Necroptosis. Mol Cell. 2017;65:965-973 pubmed publisher
    ..Here, we suggest that necroptosis might have anti-inflammatory effects in certain settings, through curbing excessive TNF- or TLR-induced inflammatory cytokine production. ..
