Abstract

The parent-into-F1 model has led to important advances in our understanding of lupus. Here, we review the work in murine lupus that elucidated the role of T cells and supported the conclusion that the parent-into-F1 model of induced lupus compares favorably with de facto gold standard spontaneous models of lupus. Then we focus on recent work in parent-into-F1 mice, which has yielded novel insights into unresolved controversies, such as the role of apoptosis in the pathogenesis of lupus and lupus in patients receiving TNF blockade. Finally, the review considers the evidence that supports a potential role for CD8 T cells, both cytotoxic and memory cells, in mediating disease remission.
