Title IL-1 as the Master Cytokine for Inflammatory Diseases
Lecture Outline Dr. Dinarello starts his lecture with the historical background for search endogenous fever-producing molecule. He then explains the studies that confirm the ability of recombinant IL-1 to evoke disease in experimental models as well as the shift from using IL-1 to blocking IL-1 in humans with inflammatory diseases. Dr. Dinarello concludes that new therapies that reduce IL-1's activities will become a new frontier in lifting the burden of disease.
