Lupus Clinical Trials

Have you been diagnosed with the chronic autoimmune disease lupus? If so, you should know there are lupus clinical trials looking for participants like you.

Why? There are two primary reasons we conduct lupus clinical trials at our facility in Birmingham:

  1. Develop more effective therapies and medications for this chronic autoimmune disease.
  2. Develop a deeper understanding of this disease and how it functions. ‘

(This knowledge will allow experts to discover a comprehensive cure someday.)

Lupus Signs & Symptoms

There are a broad range of symptoms associated with this autoimmune disease, which is why lupus is known as a “great imitator”. With so many symptoms, it can be very difficult to accurately diagnose lupus.

Common symptoms of lupus include:

  • Joint pain
  • Malaise
  • Butterfly rash
  • Skin lesions
