Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body's immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs1.
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many but not all cases of lupus.
If you are effected by lupus, you may qualify for a research study currently assessing the safety and efficacy of a new medication designed to treat this condition.
Qualified participants will be compensated for time and travel. Study medications and study related care are provided at no cost, without the need for health insurance.
Help us discover new treatments and ease the discomfort experienced by so many. Take a moment to volunteer by completing the form below.
A Study Volunteer Specialist will contact you when a study fitting your interest is available.
