About lupus

There is no known treatment or cure for lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, or S.L.E.), a chronic disorder that can attack virtually any body organ and can be fatal. Lupus is one of the nation's least recognized major diseases. It is considered the prototype autoimmune disease because the body's immune system forms antibodies that can attack virtually any healthy organ or tissue, from the kidneys to the brain, heart, lungs, skin, joints, and blood. Lupus is a leading cause of heart attack, kidney disease, and stroke among young women.

More Americans are diagnosed with lupus than with multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, sickle cell anemia, or AIDS.
