It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans suffer some form of Lupus and they are mostly women. The disease is very difficult to diagnose as the symptoms are similar to other diseases and may appear and disappear. No new advances in treatment have been made for over 30 years and the current limited treatment is unsatisfactory. More research also needs to be done to uncover effective diagnosis methods.
