Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am a professor of medicine whose work contributes significantly to the clarification of the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus and autoimmune diseases.

As an invited editor, I hereby invite review manuscripts on the pathogenesis of SLE, the review based on author’s direct evidence. Review articles expounding the author’s direct evidence are highly useful for and influential in scientific community because of the prohibition of critical discussions in many recent scientific journals. There is extensive indirect evidence of the pathogenesis of SLE. However, this contributes nothing to the clarification of the pathogenesis of SLE and to the progress of science and medicine. I encourage authors with direct evidence on the pathogenesis of SLE to post their review manuscripts.

Dr. Shunichi Shiozawa
Guest Editor
