More than a year after COVID-19 emerged, many mysteries persist about the disease: why do some people get so much sicker than others? Why does lung damage sometimes continue to worsen well after the body seems to have cleared the SARS-CoV-2 virus? And what is behind the extended, multi-organ illness that lasts for months in people with ‘long COVID’? A growing number of studies suggest that some of these questions might be explained by the immune system mistakenly turning against the body — a phenomenon known as autoimmunity.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the embodiment of a multi-organ autoimmune disease, results from hyperactivation of host-defence pathways and immune recognition of the most fundamental building blocks of life. In 2018, key advances have placed intestinal immunity and dysregulated expansions of candidate pathobionts at the forefront of SLE pathogenesis.
