According to UPI, two small molecule combinations have been found to show potential for treating autoinflammatory diseases. Researchers at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, found the new molecular combinations effectively block a central pathway of the innate immune system. The first-in-class compounds studied in Switzerland specifically activate a protein called STING -- STimulator of Interferon Genes -- that help cells fight off the infecting pathogen. Researchers have not yet developed drugs that act on the specific molecules.
