The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) joined more than 11,000 rheumatologists and allied health professionals at the American College of Rheumatology’s (ACR) 2009 Annual Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in mid-October. The program included more than 260 abstracts, plenary or special session presentations specifically about lupus.
Representatives of the LFA attended the meeting to report on new developments in basic, clinical, translational, and epidemiological research on lupus. More than 20 key lupus researchers and scientists sat down with LFA officials to talk about the research data they presented. Those on-camera interviews, and a summary of selected research abstracts, are now available to view.
Topics covered are:
- About the ACR Annual Scientific Meeting
- Treatments for Lupus
- Complications of Lupus
- Management of Lupus
- Causes of and Progression of Lupus
- Pregnancy and Lupus
