Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Third Edition has been updated from a very successful book previously offered from another publisher. Accepted as a classic reference in the area of SLE, the previous two editions cover the basic and clinical aspects of the disease. This Third Edition includes new chapters and expanded coverage of central nervous system disease and lupus, renal function, lupus and pregnancy, and experimental therapies. It presents comprehensive, current coverage of basic models of etiology and pathogenesis, and includes a complete catalog of autoantibodies produced, clinical manifestations, and therapeutic approaches.
