2009: A Year of Many Firsts in Efforts to Overcome Lupus
Date:12/23/2009

t-Ever National Public Awareness Campaign on Lupus

The Ad Council launched its first national multi-media public awareness campaign for lupus. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health (OWH), the campaign aimed to reach individuals most at risk for developing lupus - young women of childbearing age, especially African American, Asian, and Hispanic women. The Lupus Foundation of America was the Founding Partner with OWH on the campaign that is expected to generate $30 million annually in donated media exposure for lupus.

3. First Comprehensive Study to Address Barriers to Lupus Drug Development

The Lewin Group issued a report following a 9-month study commissioned by the LFA that included recommendations to overcome barriers that have obstructed lupus drug development. The LFA immediately began implementing the recommendations by launching the first-ever Collective Data Analysis Initiative (CDAI). The project will examine data from previous lupus clinical trials to learn the impact that background therapies may have had on trial outcomes and use that knowledge to improve the design of future trials of potential new therapies for lupus.

4. First-Ever Consensus Definition of Lupus Flares Reached by 120 International Lupus Experts

The LFA addressed a significant barrier to advancing the science and medicine of lupus by securing consensus on a definition of lupus flares. The Lupus Foundation of America Flare Definition (LFA-FLARE) was developed through a rigorous three-year process that involved more than 120 global lupus experts. Once validated, the LFA-FLARE is likely to be used mainly as a primary or secondary outcome for clinical trials, to assist in establishing entry criteria for certain clinical trial designs, and may be useful for managing lupus.
