The contribution of genetic variation to development of systemic lupus erythematosus

Jiang, Simon Hee-Tang


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.
