Particularly prevalent among women, lupus is a highly complex autoimmune disease in which the immune system turns against itself and attacks the body it is supposed to protect. The Department of Defense notes that lupus is “of growing medical concern for the military, primarily due to the increasing number of women serving.” Women account for almost 15 percent of active-duty Service Members, almost 20 percent of Reserves and 16 percent of the National Guard.
The Lupus Research Alliance is the only organization focused on the full spectrum of lupus research from transformative lab discoveries through clinical trials.
