By contrast, disease tolerance mechanisms limit disease severity by preventing tissue damage or ameliorating tissue function without interfering with pathogen load. We propose here that tissue damage control underlies many of the protective effects of disease tolerance. We explore the mechanisms of cellular adaptation that underlie tissue damage control in response to infection as well as sterile inflammation, integrating both stress and damage responses. Finally, we discuss the potential impact of targeting these mechanisms in the treatment of disease.Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia grants: (PTDC/SAU-TOX/116627/2010, HMSP-ICT/0022/2010, SFRH/BPD/44256/2008); European Commission 7th Framework grant: (ERC-2011-AdG. 294709-DAMAGECONTROL); Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft grant: (DFG WE 4971/3-1).info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersio
