Abstract
Innate immunity is the first-line host defence against pathogens and damaged host cells, and the major cellular components are phagocytes such as monocytes/macrophages, polymorphonuclear cells and dendritic cells. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease characterized by the loss of tolerance to self-antigens, the source of which has been suggested to be apoptotic cells. In this article, we will review studies on apoptosis in SLE and discuss the contribution of innate immunity abnormalities in the development of this condition. © 2006 Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology.
