Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus) Plagues 1.5 million Americans
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE or Lupus) is a systemic autoimmune disease that affects many joints and organs in the body. In lupus, like rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the patient’s immune system attacks their own healthy tissues. LFOA can use your assistance with Lupus research and development, we’re focused on understanding systemic lupus so we can find new treatments and a cure.
Initially, in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, the tissues being attacked are different from RA; however, in later stages, the diseases become very similar. LFOA is seeking funding for research on the pathology and causes of lupus, revealing new approaches towards developing holistic therapies and a cure.
This is a major step for lupus research towards predicting susceptibility to lupus and understanding how to prevent the onset of symptoms.
Staying committed to further autoimmune arthritis research, such as lupus research, is extremely important to everyone at LFOA. We’re looking forward to being apart of the next big discovery, treatment, therapy or cure in the next research project.
