Current Issue Highlights

Acquired immune responses are thought to be focused by specificity (e.g. foreign alloantigen), but are increasingly believed to be driven by broader signals indicating that a cell is in distress. This month, Matta et al provide a concise update on alarmins—small molecules released from distressed cells that provoke immune activation and amplification. We also provide a minireview by Scozzi et al that addresses neutrophils and their role in alloimmune response initiation, and an insightful paper by Lobb et al (also see the related editorial from Hauet and Thuillier) focusing on mitochondrial damage as a central source of innate signals of cellular injury. Together, these articles help shine light on the antigen independent mechanisms of alloimmunity. Cover design by Scott Behm, Duke University Department of Surgery.
