Microarray study reveals a transforming growth factor-β-dependent mechanism of fibrosis in discoid lupus erythematosus.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) is characterized by scarring lesions that develop and perpetuate fibrotic lesions. These are not observed in subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE). The pathophysiological basis of this is currently unknown. OBJECTIVES To identify contradistinctive signalling pathways and cellular signatures between the… (More)
