OBJECTIVE To test the hypotheses that there is an excess percentage of slow acetylators among patients with idiopathic systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and that these patients had excessive exposure to environmental amines and hydrazines before the onset of illness.

CONCLUSION Slow acetylation phenotype and exposure… CONTINUE READING
