Lupus Foundation of America Webchat to Discuss Kidney Disease in Lupus
Date:3/6/2008

WASHINGTON, March 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It is estimated that as many as 40 percent of all people with the autoimmune disease lupus, and as many as two-thirds of all children with lupus, will develop kidney complications that require medical evaluation and treatment.

March is National Kidney Month and the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) is using the observance to call attention to this serious and potentially life-threatening complication of lupus. The LFA will conduct a Webchat on the topic of the Kidneys and Lupus on the LFA Website, http://www.lupus.org, on Wednesday, March 12, beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

About the Speaker

The chat will be conducted by Dr. James Tumlin, Director of the Southeast Renal Research Institute in Charlotte, NC and Associate Professor Medicine at University of North Carolina, Charlotte. His research focuses upon clinical and translational research on renal disease.

Dr. Tumlin serves on the LFA Medical-Scientific Advisory Committee and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) task force on Acute Kidney Injury. He is on the editorial board of the Clinical Journal of the American Society Nephrology and is a reviewer for many academic journals. He published many articles in Kidney International, American Journal of Kidney Diseases, Nephrology Dialysis, and Transplantation, Journal of Clinical Investigation, JAMA and the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.

About Lupus

The LFA estimates that more than 1.5 million Americans have a form of lupus. Lupus is the result of an immune system that is out of balance and can be destructive to any major organ or tissue in the body. Lupus can be very unpredictable and is potentially fatal, yet no satisfactory treatment or a cure exists. While lupus strikes mostly women in their childbearing years, no one is safe from lupus. It can strike men, women, teens, and children. A
