What role do genetics play in vitiligo?
A large portion of my days are spent combing the internet for the latest news about vitiligo cure advancements, but tonight I thought I would tray a different tact. I went through some of my much older posts and searched the internet for updates on those particular topics.
You know how the internet is, you find an interesting article that leads you to another, then that one leads you to another, and the next thing you know an hour later you’re on a site you never thought to search, but are so happen to have come across. Well, that’s my story tonight.
A post that I had written back in 2007 about Rnai vitiligo research caught my attention. Hmmm, whatever became of this, i wondered. Through some very lucky clicking I came across a Dissertation written by Deborah Herbstman, entitled, “The Role of Genetics in Vitiligo”.
In reading this paper I learned what is known about the mechanics of vitiligo. If this interests you, go have a read here. Enjoy!
