Redefining Lupus with precision medicine

What is Precision Medicine? Precision medicine uses an individual’s genomic information, protein biomarkers, environment, and lifestyle to determine the best course of treatment for their disease. Unlike precision medicine for cancer which primarily relies on DNA mutation testing to make treatment decisions, autoimmune disease looks at RNA, DNA’s dynamic cousin to determine the best treatment. Everyone […]

Meet your biomarkers

Lupus is not the same for everyone. Molecules called biomarkers can highlight your body’s unique reaction to SLE.  You may already be familiar with several SLE biomarkers like anti-dsDNA, C3, and C4 that are commonly used to monitor SLE disease activity.

LIFT: A clinical study success story for Lupus

In a clinical study called LIFT, more than a thousand SLE patients came together and demonstrated, for the first time, that genomic markers relevant to Lupus can be measured from home. The LIFT story demonstrated the power of patient-centric research. The LIFT study is also an important first step towards making precision medicine a reality […]

There is no place like home: Transforming care for chronic illness
