“T cells from patients with SLE are known to be resistant to apoptosis after cell activation,” states George Tsokos, from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at Harvard Medical School, but the mechanisms behind this abnormality are not well understood. A paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that altered activity… CONTINUE READING
