The contribution of genetic variation to development of systemic lupus erythematosus
Systemic lupus erythematosus is the prototypical autoimmune disease characterised by multi-organ involvement. Genetic variance is one of the most potent risk factors for development of lupus yet currently identified variants only account for 15% of genetic risk. Despite a strong genetic basis it does not follow Mendelian patterns of inheritance. A favoured hypothesis is that many common, mildly damaging variants combine to predispose to lupus. An alternative...[Show more]
