Study in Sisters of Women with SLE
Enrollment begins nationwide
If you have a sister with lupus, consider making a ‘gift’ to future generations by signing up for the national SisSLE—Sisters of Women with SLE—research study.
By enrolling biological sisters of women with lupus and studying their blood and answers to health surveys, the researchers plan to find out how the environment and genes can play a role in prompting lupus to develop in some sisters and not in others.

Run (Bike, Walk, or Swim) for the Cure!
Last year, the first-ever lupus charity team in the celebrated ING New York City Marathon raised a remarkable $100,000 for lupus research!
It was an incredible effort and success. So in 2010, we’re expanding to include the LA Marathon and 5K Walk/Run in March, and the New York City Triathlon in July.
The Future of Lupus Research Is So Bright, We Gotta Wear Shades!
