In 2016, the Lupus Research Alliance launched the Lupus Clinical Investigators Network, (LuCIN) to accelerate the identification and development of new therapies for treating lupus. Comprised of leading lupus experts at academic research centers throughout North America, LuCIN provides a coordinated framework to test potential new treatments quickly and cost effectively, reflecting the highest scientific standards. LuCIN is also designed to advance quality lupus research by helping attract and train new researchers in the field.
The first clinical trial, which began in May 2017, is a non-interventional study of a custom smartphone app that enables lupus patients to report symptoms in real time, which can potentially lead to more precise treatment.
