Adenoviral vectors used in gene therapy induce inflammation, although the underlying mechanisms are currently unknown. In this issue of Immunity, Di Paolo et al. (2009) implicate interleukin-1 alpha (IL- 1 alpha) in virus-induced inflammation and identify the beta 3 integrin as the key receptor regulating IL-1 alpha activity.
