LFA-REAL System to Improve Health and Quality of Life

Currently, there are no adequate measures or tools designed to quickly and easily help a doctor and patient work together to evaluate lupus disease activity and make informed treatment decisions. This has serious implications for the care of people with lupus; moreover, the changing face of healthcare delivery makes the situation even more complex. The LFA-REAL™ (Rapid Evaluation of Activity in Lupus) system is being developed as a first-of-its-kind set of tools to monitor lupus disease activity, addressing both the needs and concerns of clinicians and people with lupus.
