An X-linked Gene Associated with Autoimmune Disorders

October 6, 2021

An exciting new discovery from researchers at Harvard Medical School has provided new insight into the possible cause of some autoimmune disorders. Autoimmune diseases are among the most common afflictions of humans, yet their root causes are not known.  Most arise spontaneously or sporadically in people without a clear genetic linkage or heritability.  Diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus are found primarily in women with an approximate 9:1 female:male ratio.  The laboratory of Richard D. Cummings, Ph.D. and Junwei Zeng, Ph.D. in the Department of Surgery at Beth...
