There have been tremendous advances in the world of lupus research. Our primarily-funded researcher, Dr. Timothy Niewold, along with his team, has discovered a grouping of genes that can be highly predictive of lupus. Help is needed to ensure this technology enters the clinic (becomes available to patients) as soon as possible. Also, Dr. Niewold’s career-long research in interferon has been instrumental in the design of the studies, and development of the recently FDA-approved drug, anifrolumab. Please help us further these discoveries!
