Local Trial Sites

At Last! Although there have been numerous new drugs developed and approved for our sister diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and multiple sclerosis, drug development in SLE had been noticeably quiet.

But, this has all changed in the past few years. Over 20 drugs are in the pipeline for development in SLE; some are further along in the development process than others. At the current time, many sites in our area are participating in many of these efforts to develop safer and more effective therapies.

Each study is looking for different types of patients; some studies require patients with active disease, whereas others require certain levels of inactivity.

Eligible patients include:
1. Patients with SLE whose disease is currently inactive
2. Patients with SLE whose disease is currently active but doesn’t involve the kidneys
3. Patients with active kidney disease (lupus nephritis)
4. Patients with inactive kidney disease
5. Patients willing to donate blood for purely observational studies
