Would you recommend it in this case? 19 100 Cases in Clinical Pathology ANSWER 7 Screening is a public health service where members of the whole population are offered a test that helps identify those at higher risk of the disease so that they may undergo further testing.

One theory is that a defect in clearance of apoptotic or necrotic cells leads to the sensitization of T- and B-cells to intracellular antigens, triggering the autoimmune process. For example, deficiencies of early complement components (C1q, C4), which are important for these clearance processes, produce an SLE-like syndrome. Other hypotheses include aberrant T-cell signal transduction as well as overexpression of particular cytokines (in particular type I interferons). Tissue injury in SLE is immune-complex mediated (type III hypersensitivity) as a result of defective clearance of apoptotic or necrotic cells due to deficiency of Fc and complement receptors.
