Abnormalities of B Lymphocytes During Systemic Lupus
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Previous experimental data strongly suggest that B lymphocytes have intrinsic abnormalities during lupus in mice spontaneously affected by the disease. This study tries to define these abnormalities by looking at the gene expression profile of purified B lymphocytes from patients with non active systemic lupus , compared with the gene expression profile of purified B lymphocytes from healthy donnors.
