The Temple Lupus Program is part of the Lupus Clinical Investigators Network (LuCIN). LuCIN is an academic-based clinical trials network comprised of some of the most prestigious medical research centers and experienced lupus physician-scientists throughout North America.
The Lupus team actively participates in innovative multinational lupus clinical trials, funded by the National Institutes of Health, Lupus Research Alliance and a number of pharmaceutical companies.
Clinical trials provide opportunities for patients to participate in the latest therapies available before they are commercially available. The Temple Lupus Program currently has a number of ongoing clinical trials available for lupus patients.
