Inflammasome signaling and downstream cytokine responses mediated by the inflammasome have been found to play an important role not only in wound healing but also in fibrosis. The inflammasome regulates the secretion of IL-1βand IL-18 cytokines are both are critical for the repair of damaged tissue and they play a role in fibrosis. However, what dictates the fine balance between normal wound healing versus fibrosis is yet to be fully elucidated. Further investigations into the role of the inflammasomes in these pathologies will be important for the discovery of novel therapeutics that can abrogate fibrosis or promote wound healing in chronic disease.
