Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-G is a class I non-classical HLA molecule with an important regulatory role on the immune response. The possible role of this molecule in the pathogenesis of SLE has not been explored. In this work, we evaluated the expression and function of HLA-G in SLE patients. We studied 37 SLE patients as well as 25 healthy donors… CONTINUE READING
