    Introduction. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease with a complex etiology. Genetic and hormonal factors as well as signal transduction changes contribute to its pathogenesis. There is compelling evidence that autoimmunity is under genetic control and estrogens and their...

    Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease. Fcγ receptor genes have been suggested to play an important role in the pathogenesis of SLE and lupus nephritis (LN). This study aims to assess the association between FcγRIIIb-NA1/NA2 polymorphism and the susceptibility...

    Estrogens and their receptors may play a role in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus. Genetic alterations in the exon 8-coding region of the estrogen receptor alpha alter the intracellular signalling of estrogens, leading in enhanced or diminished activity. We investigated whether...
