2010: Moving Toward a New Era of Hope and Optimism in Lupus Research, Treatment, and Awareness

Events of 2010 represented the beginning of the long anticipated transition to a new era in which the 1.5 million Americans and the more than five million individuals worldwide living with the autoimmune disease lupus can look forward to an improved quality of life. Potential new treatments for lupus passed several milestones on the road toward approval, public and private investment in lupus research continued to grow, awareness of lupus received a boost from celebrity involvement, and several new LFA initiatives fueled efforts to improve future lupus clinical trials. The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) has compiled a list of the 2010 Top Ten Achievements in Lupus.

These 2010 achievements were the result of combined efforts of many people.  Through the ongoing support of the lupus community, other stakeholders and the public, the LFA will continue its efforts in 2011 to find the causes of and cure for lupus while providing support, services and hope to all people affected by lupus – From Care to Cure.
