That's an SLE prevalence of rough ly 1 in 1,000 individuals, a considerably higher figure than the usually cited estimates of 1 in 500 among African American women and 1 per 2,000 white women, with much lower rates in men.
In general, postmenopausal-onset SLE tends to have a milder course than does disease that occurs at a younger age.
The diagnosis of pediatric SLE usually occurs during the ages of 11-14 years.
Given the influence of estrogen on SLE in experimental models, we hypothesized that OCPs with estrogenic effects would similarly accelerate lupus development.
Eric Sobel, an associate professor of rheumatology and clinical immunology at the University of Florida, studied the effects of chlordecone, an organochlorine pesticide, on the development of SLE in a mouse model bred to be susceptible to the disease.
At least one study has found that survival in patients with SLE has plateaued since the 1990s.
