Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Systemic Lupus Erytematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by profound dysregulation of the innate and adaptive immune responses with the aberrant production of proinflammatory cytokines, generation of antinuclear antibodies and multiorgan damage. SLE patients are also at a significant risk of cardiovascular complications such as accelearated atherosclerosis largely driven by immune alterartions. Therefore, we are opening a Special Issue to compile the latest research in the following topics: innate and/or adaptive immune dysregulation, mechanisms leading to atherosclerosis, potential treatments/ personalized medicine, molecular and/or cellular aspects leading to SLE.

Comprehensive reviews, original articles or short communications are welcome.

We are looking forward to your contributions to this Special Issue.

Dr. Carmelo Carmona-Rivera
