Qu underscored that the IFNA
initiative is an important mechanism to achieve these goals and that FAO will continue supporting it.
 have shown that IFN[alpha] induces specific degradation of the nuclear viral DNA; their experimental data suggest that IFNa
activation and activation of the lymphotoxin-[beta] receptor upregulates APOBEC3A and APOBEC3B, two cytidine deaminases, in HBV-infected cells, primary hepatocytes and human liver tissue specimens, to degrade cccDNA.
The moot also decided to set up a five-member Coordination Committee for the operation of International Forum of News Agencies (IFNA
) as recommended by the participating countries.
The recommendations were unanimously adopted by the participants, who agreed to establish IFNA
for providing a platform to national news agencies.

In the case of atherosclerosis a link has been found with TLR-induced IFNa
[18,80, 81], while, in cancer, the cells dying from chemotherapy release endogenous molecules that bring about an innate immune response following TLRmediated recognition, which has been found to be critical for cancer elimination .
Plasmacytoid dendritic cells participate in autoimmune diseases, such as IgG4-related pancreatitis, lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis, likely contributing to IFNa
production [31, 32].

Several autoimmune and inflammatory diseases (Type 1 diabetes, systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, etc.) are characterized by a disorder of cytokines that are found produced in excess (ex: IFNa
Neovacs has received the approval Investigational New Drug (IND), from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to extend its ongoing Phase IIb clinical trial of IFNa
Kinoid for the treatment of Lupus to the United States.
