Update on new Lupus treatment pipeline
« on: June 23, 2015, 04:58:42 pm »
Recently, the Cancer Therapy and Research Center in San Antonio, Texas, received a $1.12 million federal grant to figure out the precise set of hormonal signals that allow estrogen to interfere with the body?s healthy immune function. This work could lead to an important breakthrough in lupus treatment.

"Your immune system has a really complicated job. It's got to figure out what's supposed to be there and what's not," said Tyler Curiel, MD, MP, an oncologist and immunologist at the center. "It's the Homeland Security of your body."

Interestingly, Curiel was trying to solve a mystery in ovarian cancer when the search showed him that estrogen and the immune system play a role in the development of lupus.
