Damage associated molecular patterns, also known as ‘alarmins’, are endogenous molecules that are released by in the event of tissue injury or infection. They are recognized by pattern recogniton receptors. Alarmins activate innate immune cells and thereby act as danger signals to promote and perpetuate inflammation; uncontrolled release of alarmins can lead to dysregulated inflammatory response. Ahmed Achouiti studies and describes two alarmins and their receptors in several infectious diseases.
