Lupus : A major unmet medical need

Lupus is a chronic and severe autoimmune disease in which the immune system produces antibodies to cells within the body leading to widespread inflammation and tissue damage. It may affect multiple organ systems, including the skin, the joints, the heart, the lungs and the kidneys. It can result in arthritis, kidney failure, cardio-vascular and pulmonary problems, nervous system disorders, inflammation of the circulatory system and hematologic abnormalities. Lupus is a life-threatening disease, with mortality most frequently a result of secondary effects of the disease, most commonly glomerular nephritis leading to kidney failure. Lupus disease may first occur at any age, though peak diagnosis is between the ages of 15 and 40. It is far more common in women than men: approximately 90% of cases are diagnosed in women. Prevalence estimates for the disease vary widely, and range as high as 1.5 million in North America (the Lupus Foundation of America) and 5 million worldwide.

There is currently no targeted therapy for lupus: rather the treatment strategy is to control symptoms and prevent disease flares. This strategy relies on the use of corticosteroids and immunosuppressants, which have significant tolerability and toxicity issues in a chronic use setting. Some biologics are also used off-label, but their efficacy appears modest.
