Decreased breast cancer risk in systemic lupus erythematosus: the search for a genetic basis continues
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Recent work has demonstrated an important decrease in breast cancers for women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The reason behind this phenomenon is unknown. Our purpose was to explore whether the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) predisposing to SLE might be protective against breast cancer (in women in the general population).
