Cigarette smoking, antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) and vascular events (VE) in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).

 

Among ever regular smokers who were aPL positive, there was a strikingly high frequency of former VE and the underlying mechanisms and temporality between smoking, aPL and VE need further investigations. PubMed, Ann Rheum Dis, 2014 Apr 1. (Also see: Antiphospholid Syndrome and Antibodies in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus)
