This lecture is aimed at shedding light on the molecular
cascades underlying regulation of the innate immune response, and
providing clues for the development of therapeutics for various
inflammatory diseases. In the late 1990s, the search for novel
proinflammatory mediators that are released “late” by
macrophages/monocytes during lethal systemic inflammation has led
to the seminal discovery of HMGB1. Dr. Wang will discuss their
study in screening Chinese medicinal herbs for components that can
inhibit HMGB1 release and confer protection in animal models of
lethal systemic inflammatory diseases such as sepsis.
