Product Overview

Lupus is a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks itself, culminating in disease which can affect multiple organ systems, including the skin, joints, heart, lungs, kidneys, and central nervous system. Lupus currently affects around 30,000 people in the UK, and 500,000 in the United States. Whilst there have been great advances in research into the genetic background of lupus and new treatments such as stem cell transplants, there is still a surprising lack of information available for patients, carers, and their families.
Written by the former president of the British Society for Rheumatology and the current co-director of the Lupus Centre of Excellence in Pittsburgh, USA, this new edition of Lupus: The Facts reflects major developments in our understanding of the causes of lupus. It discusses the treatment options available, how to manage the condition on a day to-day basis, and offers advice for families, friends and carers.
