Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus is proud to partner with the Alliance for Lupus Research, now known as the Lupus Research Alliance (LRA), in spurring funding towards research we hope will lead to new and better medications, treatments and eventually a cure for lupus.  


Unlocking the mysteries of lupus — Through Research

Lupus is a very complex autoimmune disease that is difficult to diagnose, treat, and defeat. This is why the LRA is working hard to fund promising scientific investigations conducted by the best and brightest minds in lupus research.

“We believe it is possible to beat lupus for good—and that the answer is research.”

  • In little more than a decade, the LRA has grown to become the world’s largest private funder of lupus research.
  • No other non-governmental organization has done more to combat this awful disease.
  • The LRA has committed nearly $90 million to lupus research — giving hope to those with the disease that viable treatment options and a cure are on the horizon.
  • Over 1.5 million Americans have lupus—that’s more than all the patients with cerebral palsy, MS, cystic fibrosis & leukemia.

The LRA’s approach is simple: Fight the disease on many fronts. 

“Our aim is to facilitate the advancement of the conceptual understanding of lupus, the development of an array of more effective treatments with fewer side effects, and ultimately the cure for lupus.” Lupus trials

The LRA is partnering with the Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) to provide you with a search of clinical trials in your geographic area (combining results from both www.clinicaltrials.gov and www.centerwatch.com). SearchClinicalTrials.org is run by CISCRP, a non-profit organization focused on educating and informing the public about clinical research participation. CISCRP and the LRA are not involved in recruiting patients for clinical trials nor are they involved in conducting clinical trials.
