This shows the researcherStudy reveals why some people with ALS are prone to developing autoimmune diseases. A genetic mutation that decreases the expression of C9orf72 causes the stimulation of interferon genes (STING) protein to become hyperactive. The hyperactivity leads to increased production of interferons. This can lead to systemic inflammation and the development of autoimmune diseases.
