Oxalate, the Inflammasome and Autoimmunity

The inflammasome governs activation of inflammatory responses, through one of two very important arms of our immune system our innate immune response (and only recently discovered in 2002!) And is now a hot topic among scientists. Look at the over 800 studies linking inflammasomes to cancer, and over 400 studies linking it to autoimmune disease, as well as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease. In this interview, Susan Owens shares her insight into how oxalate is involved with the inflammasome and autoimmune disease (as well as autism of course).
