    Special Issue on Lupus Erythematosus


    Lupus Erythematosus is a typical autoimmune connective tissue disease, in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues. Symptoms of these diseases can affect many different body systems, including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, heart, and lungs. The course of lupus erythematosus is unpredictable, with periods of illness alternating with remissions. The disease occurs nine times more often in women than in men, especially in women in child-bearing years ages 15 to 35. It is of vital importance to prevent the disease, improve quality of patients’ life and develop effective treatment. 


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring lupus erythematosus. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Classification of lupus erythematosus
    • Signs and symptoms of lupus erythematosus
    • Causes of lupus erythematosus
    • Pathophysiology of lupus erythematosus
    • Diagnosis of lupus erythematosus
    • Prevention of lupus erythematosus
    • Treatment of lupus erythematosus
    • Epidemiology of lupus erythematosus


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
