HUNTSVILLE, AL -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/14 -- Conversant Bio, a global leader in supplying the highest-quality human tissue and viable cell samples, today announced it is publishing a guide to the basics of systemic lupus erythematosus, or SLE. The e-book The Researcher's Ultimate Guide to Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, is available as a free download at http://www.conversantbio.com/the-researchers-ultimate-guide-to-systemic-lupus-erythematosus.
Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic autoimmune disorder that causes protracted inflammation of almost any organ system -- most often, the skin, joints, kidneys, blood cells, and nervous system. Of the four types of lupus, SLE is the most common, currently afflicting approximately 1.5 million Americans. Though there is no cure, researchers are working toward solving the disease. This guide offers valuable, real-world information to those researchers, including:
- Basics of SLE, including symptoms and causes
- Explanations of how patients are diagnosed and how the disease affects their lifestyles
- Medications and treatments
- Research challenges
- Case studies
The e-book also details how quality blood samples from SLE patients are critical for researchers seeking a cure.
"It's important for researchers to know that autoimmune specimens open up the possibility to advance their SLE research through sample specificity and flexibility," says Luke Doiron, chief commercial officer for Conversant Bio. "Our goal with this e-book is to share crucial information about SLE so we can help researchers optimize their goals."
