Living with Lupus


About Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies performed on human subjects that aim to evaluate a new medical, surgical or behavioral intervention. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment: such as a new drug, diet or medical device will be effective in helping to address ongoing medical concerns.

Facts About Lupus

  • Lupus is not contagious disease. It is not an STD. You cannot “catch” lupus from someone or “give” lupus to someone. Lupus is autoimmune disease, meaning it is a condition that arises from an abnormal immune response in the body, often leading to rashes, hair loss, and other symptoms. 

  • Lupus is not related to cancer. Cancer is a condition of malignant and abnormal tissue that grow rapidly and spread into surrounding tissues. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, as described above. However, some treatments for lupus may include immunosuppressant drugs that are also used in chemotherapy.

  • Lupus is not related to HIV (Human Immune Deficiency Virus) or AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). In HIV or AIDS the immune system is underactive; in lupus, the immune system is overactive.

  • Lupus can range from mild to life-threatening and should always be treated by a doctor. With good medical care, most people with lupus can lead a full life.
