Health Science Center’s Casali Awarded Lupus Research Grant

May 19, 2014

Dr. Paolo Casali, with the School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, is one of six recipients of a grant from the Alliance for Lupus Research.

Casali’s three-year, $600,000 grant will be used to study the impact of drugs called epigenetic modulators on lupus.

Systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE, is an autoimmune disease that debilitates as many as 1.5 million Americans — mostly women who are in their fertile years. Some scientists believe that epigenetic modulators, often used in the treatment of lymphomas, could be useful therapies for lupus as well.
