What is Lupus?
Lupus is a complex disease, the cause of which is unknown. The body forms antibodies against its own tissues. The antibodies attach to certain protein molecules resulting in immune complexes which contribute to inflammation and tissue injury in different parts of the body.
Over the years, there have been major advancements in our understanding of lupus. However, there is still a need to bridge the gap between treatment and research in order to generate new data for finding a possible cure that will provide solace and hope to lupus patients and their families.
