Interferon-β inhibits inflammatory responses mediators via suppression of iNOS signaling pathway in PBMCs from patients with primary Sjögren’s syndrome

Interferon-β inhibits inflammatory responses mediators via suppression of iNOS signaling pathway... Background Primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS) represents a chronic, systemic autoimmune disorder, characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of exocrine glands, inducing compromised secretory function and tissue destruction. Increasing evidence had revealed that inflammatory mediators, such as nitric oxide (NO) and pro-inflammatory cytokines, are critical in the development and perpetuation of pSS systemic manifestations. In our current study, we aimed to investigate the ex vivo immunomodulatory effect of interferon (IFN)-β on iNOS expression, as well as on pro-inflammatory (tumor necrosis fac - tor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-6) and immunoregulatory (IL-10) cytokine production.

Abstract

Background Primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS) represents a chronic, systemic autoimmune disorder, characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of exocrine glands, inducing compromised secretory function and tissue destruction. Increasing evidence had revealed that inflammatory mediators, such as nitric oxide (NO) and pro-inflammatory cytokines, are critical in the development and perpetuation of pSS systemic manifestations. In our current study, we aimed to investigate the ex vivo immunomodulatory effect of interferon (IFN)-β on iNOS expression, as well as on pro-inflammatory (tumor necrosis fac - tor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-6) and immunoregulatory (IL-10) cytokine production. Furthermore, we examined potential associations between the influence of IFN-β treatment on NO production, and pSS clinical and serological manifestations. Methods In 41 pSS patients documented for their clinical and serological features, NO and cytokines levels were measured by the Griess method and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, respectively. Inducible nitric oxide synthase expression was analyzed by fluorescence immunostaining assay, using peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) isolated from healthy controls and pSS patients.
