With dedicated financial and grassroots support, the estimated 1.4 million people in the U.S. who have lupus can benefit from ground-breaking research conducted around the world. This disease, whose symptoms such as low-grade fever, extreme fatigue, lupus rash, and painful/swollen joints mimic the symptoms of other diseases, is difficult to diagnose and treat. Women of childbearing age and African-American, Latino, Native American, and Asian descent are especially at risk for the disease. But with continued lupus research by some of the most promising scientists, people affected by lupus can have more time and better tools to cope and can even begin to hope for a lupus-free future. Thank you for your interest in and support of the Alliance for Lupus Research!
