Research Progress Related to Vitiligo
The NIAMS supports research to help treat and possibly prevent vitiligo. Researchers are looking at the immune response to understand the body’s natural mechanisms that trigger and control autoimmune diseases, which could be used to develop new treatment strategies. In addition, studies are looking for genes and other factors that may contribute to vitiligo and are exploring possible new treatments for the disease.
