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.
Lessons from Studies on Lupus Genetics
Dr. Lindsey Criswell of the University of California, San Francisco discusses advances in the search for genes believed responsible for lupus, including advances made possible by genome-wide scans that now allow researchers to look at thousands of genes at a time. Dr. Criswell shares data from several studies and provides a glimpse into the future on how these data might be helpful in treating lupus.
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.
