A recent study from the Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts; Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA; and Institute for Biomedical Research, University College London, London, UK shows that “Nociceptive sensory neurons drive interleukin-23-mediated psoriasiform skin inflammation.” This study was published in the Apr 23 2014 Nature by Prof Ulrich H. von Andrian, Lorena Riol-Blanco, and others.
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: MiRNA-based therapy for Psoriasis: MiRNA-217 inhibits psoriasiform skin inflammation via down regulation of its target gene. This study suggests that MiRNA-217, by decreasing the expression of its target gene, it may alleviate the interleukin-23-mediated psoriasiform skin inflammation. Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing “MiRNA-217 or its activators” may be used to alleviate psoriasiform skin inflammation.
