Description

Author Daniel J. Wallace, M.D., is one of the world's leading authorities on lupus, a disease of the immune system which can be deadly. 

In the fifth edition of his popular book, Wallace provides new information about the pathology of the disease and about its treatments, including the new biologic drug for lupus, belimumab (Benlysta). Readers will also discover fully updated sections on the science of lupus and current research trends and directions, as well as on the impact of lifestyle decisions. 

As in past editions, the book provides answers to such questions as: What causes lupus? How and where is the body affected? Can a woman with lupus have a baby? And how can one manage this disease? Throughout, Wallace gives readers the benefit of his extensive experience by providing the most up-to-date information. There is also a glossary of terms and an appendix of lupus resource materials compiled by the Lupus Foundation of America. 

More than one million Americans have lupus. The Lupus Book Fifth Edition offers these people and their families an abundance of reliable, up-to-date information that will help them manage the disease and live a happier life. This book has earned the Lupus Foundation of America Education Committee Seal of Approval.
