European Biotechnology—August 16, 2018

European Biotechnology featured a study by HSS scientist Theresa T. Lu, MD, PhD, who investigated the potential link between immune cells and photosensitivity in patients with lupus.

Additionally, findings indicated that skin samples from lupus patients also had decreased numbers of Langerhans cells.
