    Well, i'm really not sure about it may helped/be linked to our disease, as my knowledge/understanding in Immunity is really too poor, lol, but for sure some of you will understand and maybe explain us ?

    Interesting development. Small molecular weight kinase inhibitors have always looked to be an attractive way of specific targeting in immune cells rather than big biologic drugs. The downside has been lack of specificity and lots of side effects. However, that is no reason not to keep trying. IRAK4 would be an interesting new target. TLR may not be important in all that many autoimmune disease but there is increasing evidence for TLR-4 being important on B cells generally - so it certainly has a logic to it. Mouse studies are not always that relevant but at least the models used suggest good biological effectiveness and reasonable specificity.
