New Batch of Lupus Genes Discovered
Date:1/21/2008

America. Women are much more likely to be struck by lupus than men, and black women are more vulnerable than white women to developing the disease.

The role that a family history of the disease plays has been known for some time, noted Dr. Robert Kimberly, principal investigator for SLEGEN. A sibling of a person with lupus has a 20 to 30 times greater likelihood of developing the condition.

Experts also say environmental factors might jumpstart the disease.

This latest research "represents an acceleration of discovery," Kimberly said. "It's not just encouraging. It has us all quite excited about what we might be able to accomplish."
