AutoImmunity PostDoc Position Available @ Basel University Switzerland: PostDoc Position in Autoimmunity
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is the archetype of an autoimmune disease in which complement C1q, the first component of the classical pathway, seems to play a central role. Autoantibodies against complement C1q (anti-C1q) have been shown to be associated with severe nephritis and disease activity in patients with SLE, and experimental studies suggest a direct pathogenic role of this antibody.
