Lupus is an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation of different tissues of the body. The most common type of lupus is systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which affects different parts of the body including internal organs. The causes of SLE are unknown but are believed to be linked to genetic, environmental, and hormonal factors. Women of childbearing ages are at greatest risk of developing SLE.

The NIAID role in lupus research includes supporting clinical trials that are conducted across the United States. The following study is sponsored by NIAID. The link leads to a full description, eligibility criteria, and contact information.
