Clinical Trial Participation

If you have been diagnosed with Lupus or another medical condition and you are frustrated with the lack of safe and effective treatment choices currently available, then you may want to consider participating in a clinical research trial. Please keep in mind that making the choice to participate in a clinical study is a very personal decision that should be based on discussions between you, your loved ones, and your treating healthcare providers who are the most familiar with your medical history.  We cannot emphasize this point strongly enough.  

Clinical Trial Search Tool 

We are very excited to partner with Antidote to launch a clinical research trial search tool. To begin searching click on the white START button and you will be taken to the condition search page which has Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) listed as the default. If this is your choice, then click on the purple Next button and respond to the prompts. If you would prefer to search for another condition, then replace Systemic Lupus Erythematosus with the other condition. You will then be asked to respond to several questions to help identify possible clinical trials for you.
