The mannose-binding lectin gene (MBL-2) has emerged as a candidate for systemic lupus erythematosus susceptibility, but studies in Brazilian population have not been conducted. To examine potential associations of mannose-binding lectin alleles G57E, G54D, IVSnt5, R52C and R52H with susceptibility to and clinical expression of systemic lupus erythematosus in southern Brazilian patients, we conducted a case-control study with 327 consecutive patients with diagnosis of systemic lupus… CONTINUE READING
