Lupus Research Institute Requests Strengthened NIH Funding for Biomedical Research in Debilitating Diseases like Lupus
Date:3/13/2013

WASHINGTON, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lupus Research Institute (LRI) calls for Congressional budget action to sustain the nation's biomedical research enterprise at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The Hearing is being held as the first phase of sequestration to federally funded programs is underway, with anticipated cuts of $1.6 billion to NIH budgets.

He pointed to the critical need to provide safe and effective treatments to the millions suffering with the devastating autoimmune disease lupus and emphasized the implications of research into lupus as the prototype for the 100+ autoimmune diseases affecting one out of every five Americans.

Lupus a Devastating Disease Affecting 1.5 Million Americans 
To foster an appreciation for the magnitude of suffering that lupus brings, Dr. Furie asked the Subcommittee to imagine a disease with no known cause or cure that is a leading cause of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease among young women. He went on to describe lupus as a disease that strikes without warning, strikes at random, attacking the brain, heart, lungs, or blood -- virtually any human organ and tissue.

"During the course of my career, approximately 100 of my lupus patients have died, and countless have had strokes or have gone on to kidney failure and required
