Regulation and function of Damage-Associated Molecular Pattern Molecules (DAMPs), e.g., high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) and histone, in cell injury, cell death (e.g., apoptosis, necrosis, necroptosis, proptosis and ferroptosis), adaptation (e.g., autophagy), and their pathophysiological role in cancer (e.g., pancreatic cancer and leukemia) and inflammatory disease (e.g., pancreatitis and sepsis).
