details:
“Autoimmune disease such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are associated with higher risk for development of cardiovascular disease mainly due to accelerated atherosclerosis. Our laboratory has demonstrated that the presence of SLE is sufficient to increase atherosclerotic burden in LDLr-deficient mice. In addition, we find that accumulation of T cells in the plaque, and not just general state of activation, appears to be a requirement for accelerated atherosclerosis. Our research suggests that T cells are a viable therapeutic target for SLE-accelerated atherosclerosis.”
