SAMP-ening down sepsis

Authors: Alison Coady, Victor Nizet

Abstract

The inflammatory response is a critical component of innate immunity and required for controlling infection, clearing cellular damage, and initiating tissue repair. While this response is usually self-limiting and tightly controlled, inflammation can sometimes be aberrantly activated and prove injurious to host tissues, leading to acute or chronic disease pathologies.
