Antiviral proinflammatory phenotype of monocytes in anti-MDA5 antibody-associated interstitial lung disease.

Like Comment
To evaluate upstream and downstream regulators leading to macrophage activation and subsequent cytokine storm in patients with anti-melanoma differentiation-associated gene 5 (MDA5) antibody-associated interstitial lung disease (ILD).We conducted an integrated miRNA-mRNA association analysis using circulating monocytes from 3 patients with anti-MDA5-associated ILD and 3 healthy controls and identified disease pathways and a regulator effect network by Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA). The expression of relevant genes and proteins was verified using an independent validation cohort, including 6 patients with anti-MDA5-associated ILD, 5 with anti-aminoacyl tRNA synthetase antibody-associated ILD, and 6 healthy controls.IPA identified 26 matched pairs of downregulated miRNA and upregulated mRNAs and revealed that canonical pathways mediated by type I IFN signaling and C-C motif ligand 2 (CCL2) were responsible for the pathogenic process (P
