Women develop lupus nine times more often than men. Research implicates hormones and having two X chromosomes as risk factors for women. However, little is known about why men get lupus. Dr. Bruce Richardson of the University of Michigan has received a Lupus Foundation of America national research grant to study lupus in men. In this video, Dr. Richardson describes his research project and his hypothesis regarding the role epigenetics plays in the development of lupus in males.
