About Lupus

Lupus is the result of an unbalanced immune system that can become destructive to any major organ or tissue in the body. Lupus is unpredictable and potentially fatal, yet no satisfactory treatment or cure exists. Its health consequences may include heart attacks, strokes, seizures, or sudden organ failure. Current treatments are immune-suppressing agents, which have toxic side effects, increasing risks for infections and other bodily damage. The LFA estimates that more than 1.5 million Americans have some form of lupus.

Although lupus can strike any person at any age, nine of 10 people with lupus are women of childbearing age (ages 15-45). Lupus is two to three times more common among women of color, including African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and Asians.

About the Lupus Foundation of America

The LFA is the nation's foremost nonprofit voluntary health organization dedicated to finding the causes of and cure for lupus, and providing support, services, and hope to all people affected by lupus. The LFA and its network of nearly 300 chapters, branches, and support groups conduct programs of research, education, and advocacy.
