Innovation Becomes Impact with New
Lupus Research Institute Discoveries
Novel Research Results Advance Improvements in Patient Care
Lupus Research Institute (LRI) novel research studies just published share breakthrough results that can change the way two common complications of lupus – anemia and atherosclerosis – can be prevented and treated.
Anemia affects up to 75 percent of people with lupus, causing weakness, shortness of breath, and headaches as well as fatigue so severe it can be hard just to get out of bed. It occurs when there are not enough red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body.
