Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ in the body. Lupus can be unpredictable and potentially fatal, yet no satisfactory treatment or cure exists. An estimated 65,000 Illinois residents have lupus. Its health effects include heart attacks, strokes, seizures, miscarriages, and organ failure.
