Hermann et al. reveal a lifestyle-independent sex disparity in liver metastasis and survival of pancreatic cancer caused by TIMP1. Increased TIMP1 expression in males predicts liver metastasis in various cancer entities. Such insight into the basis of sex differences substantiates the necessity of considering sex in cancer medicine.

Hausmann et al. describe a sentinel intercrypt macrophage population in the intestine, which detects Gram-negative microbes breaching the epithelial barrier and elicits epithelial NF-κB signaling in neighboring crypts. The tunability of this crypt-scale response allows the induction of appropriately scaled defenses according to the localization and intensity of microbial triggers.

The present study shows in murine models that autoimmunity, which targets normal cholangiocytes upon primary biliary cholangitis, fuels the immunosurveillance of malignant cholangiocytes and protects from the emergence of cholangiocarcinoma.

TB results in 1.5 million deaths per year, yet a low percentage of M. tuberculosis–infected individuals progress to TB. Knowledge of the early immune response during TB progression and on treatment will inform clinical management of the disease.

Aire is a master of central tolerance. Goldfarb et al. compare mice with recessive or dominant-negative Aire patient mutations to dissect the mechanisms that underlie dominance and identify an autoregulatory mechanism by which Aire negatively modulates its own expression.

CAPS is an IL-1β–mediated autoinflammatory disease due to gain-of-function mutations in NLRP3. This work shows that skin-infiltrating neutrophils represent a substantial source of IL-1β in CAPS patients. In mice, gain-of-function mutations in Nlrp3 restricted to neutrophils are sufficient to trigger severe CAPS.

Distinct types of cytokine storms aggravate respiratory viral infection. This study shows that in severe influenza, TLR7 antagonist treatment ameliorates both type I interferon–driven and interferon-independent immunopathology by blocking TLR7-dependent cytokine production by immune cells, without affecting RIG-I–dependent responses in lung epithelia.
