As a part of the body that fight infection defense system, IL-1 circulates throughout the body and can trigger inflammatory reactions to to inflammatory cells. Researchers have found that changes in the cryopyrin protein lead to over-production of IL-1, an inflammatory reaction and the symptoms of what CAPS. Most, but not all, patients with CAPS have the NLRP-3 gene mutation. Continue reading
