What is Lupus?

Lupus is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system attacks it's own organs and healthy tissues such as the skin, kidneys, lungs, brain, and joints. Symptoms include joint pain, fatigue, fever, chest pain when breathing, hair loss, sunlight sensitivity, and swollen lymph nodes.

There is no cure of lupus, but there are treatments for the symptoms. Common drug classes used to treat lupus are antirheumatics, BLyS-specific inhibitors, corticosteroids, and adrenocorticotropic hormones.
