The immune system of individuals with Lupus cannot differentiate between foreign matter and its own cells and tissues.
With individuals with Lupus, their immune systems direct antibodies against itself resulting in damage, inflammation and pain to various parts of the body (as listed above).
For most individuals Lupus will be of a mild form affecting only a few parts of the body. However in some cases it can be a serious, even life threatening condition.
A national not for profit organization, the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) seeks to find the causes and ultimately a cure for lupus. The LFA provides services support and hope to those individuals affected by lupus.
