This article is the second part of a review that addresses the role of damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) in human diseases by presenting examples of traumatic (systemic inflammatory response syndrome), cardiovascular (myocardial infarction), metabolic (type 2 diabetes mellitus), neurodegenerative (Alzheimer's disease), malignant and infectious diseases. Various DAMPs are involved in the pathogenesis of all these diseases as they activate innate immune machineries including the… CONTINUE READING
