Dr. William Stohl of the University of Southern California discusses the relationships among various parts of the immune system and their role in triggering lupus.
Apoptosis and Microparticles in the Development of Lupus
There has been considerable research into the possible origins of lupus. In this video, Dr. David Pisetsky of Duke University Medical Center discusses the possible role of apoptosis (programmed cell death) and microparticles in triggering lupus disease activity.
Dr. Gregg Silverman discusses B-cells and how they contribute to the development of lupus and offers insight on the future direction of lupus research.
