More About Autoimmune diseases DERMATOMYOSITIS In 2003, a novel mechanism was described wherein hydroxychloroquine inhibits stimulation of the toll-like receptor TLR 9 family receptors. TLRs are cellular receptors for microbial products that induce inflammatory responses through activation of the innate immune system. Plaquenil is prescribed as a disease-modifier, in other words, to decrease pain, decrease swelling, and prevent joint damage and disability. It is not known how Plaquenil works but researchers believe that Plaquenil interferes with communication between cells within the immune system.   Ultimately, it is thought to block proinflammatory.
