New Means of Predicting Atherosclerosis Risk in Lupus Patients Developed

A new technique of predicting the risk of atherosclerosisamong women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) - also known as lupus - has been developed in the US, using multiple biomarkers to create a more comprehensive screening method.

The University of California, Los Angeles study suggests that combining a number of different measurements into a single biomarker panel can be used to better predict future progression of atherosclerosis in this patient group.

Currently, it is known that lupus is associated with an increased frequency of atherosclerosis, but this is not fully explained by the presence of traditional cardiac risk factors. However, measurements of nontraditional biomarkers such as proinflammatory high-density lipoprotein and leptin have been shown to help demonstrate this association in the past.
