UMass Memorial Lupus Center

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a multiorgan autoimmune connective tissue disease with a clinical presentation that varies from mild to critical and can be organ threatening. A proportion of patients with SLE may also test positive for antiphospholipid antibodies. These antibodies may be associated with thrombotic events and pregnancy morbidity, known as antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), which is a rare condition. 

The Lupus Center at UMass Chan provides comprehensive multidisciplinary care based on the needs of our patients who have been diagnosed with SLE and/or APS.
