As reported by Lupus News Today, genes regulating the growth factor VEGF signaling pathway are linked to the presence of mouth ulcers in people with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), according to a study presented at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2016) in London on June 10. The finding gives scientists a clue of disease processes at work, and will help to focus research into this specific lupus manifestation.​
