Hope is on the Horizon

Clinical Trial Participation

 

If you have been diagnosed with Lupus or another medical condition and you are frustrated with the lack of safe and effective treatment choices currently available, then you may want to consider participating in a clinical research trial. Please keep in mind that making the choice to participate in a clinical study is a very personal decision that should be based on discussions between you, your loved ones, and your treating healthcare providers that are the most familiar with your medical history.  We cannot emphasize this point strongly enough.  

 


Clinical Study Search Tool 

 

We are very excited to partner with Antidote to launch a clinical research trial search tool. To begin searching for trials for Lupus or another disease, click on the white Start button and respond to the prompts. You will then be asked to answer several questions to help narrow down and identify possible clinical trials for you.
