High Levels of IL-35, a Signaling Molecule, May Slow PF Progression

A signaling molecule called interleukin 35 (IL-35) is at unusually high levels in lung tissues from mice and in people with pulmonary fibrosis (PF), and seems to play a role in slowing disease progression, a study found. These findings indicate that IL-35 might be a new therapeutic target for a disease with “few treatment options,” its scientists wrote. The study, “IL-35 subunit EBI3 alleviates bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis via suppressing DNA enrichment of STAT3,” was published…
