Lupus Awareness Month and Lupus Science & Medicine

1 May, 16 | by flee

Lupus, SLE, or “systemic lupus erythematosus” is a disease that affects millions of people worldwide, a disease that strikes mostly women in all age groups including adolescents and young adults, a disease that can cause chronic or recurring symptoms from many different parts of the body, a disease that can be treated to some extent, but it cannot be cured – and yet it is a disease that most people do not know much about. That’s why as Editors of the journal Lupus Science & Medicine we are delighted that the Lupus Awareness Month initiative has been taken in the hope of gaining a greater understanding of lupus among the larger public.
