My wife Dawn has lupus and was diagnosed with cc in November of 2006. I do not know if there is an autoimmune disease connection. She also suffered kidney failure as a result of lupus which led to a transplant and of course numerous drugs that affect the immune system. I have inquired about the anti-immune drugs as a possible cause of the cc. The answer I have received is that cc is not one of the cancer types that are known to be linked to immunosuppressant drugs.
