Systemic lupus erythematosus, also commonly known as lupus, is an autoimmune disease which results in inflammation of tissues in the body with common symptoms like fever, fatigue, skin rashes, malaise, joint pain, and temporary loss of cognitive ability. Immune response is directed toward the body’s own cells, resulting in acute or chronic inflammation. Symptoms of lupus are general and hence often mistaken with symptoms of other diseases. This results in unnoticed progression of disease in the body. The disease is more common in women and usually affects individuals in the age group of 25 to 45. Although the main cause of disease is unknown, it is linked to genetic and hormonal factors. Globally increasing awareness about lupus is expected to remain key growth driver during the period of study.
