If lupus makes it difficult to live life without interruptions, there may be hope in the EMBODY program. This program is a clinical research study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational study medication in people with lupus. Though there is no cure, you may or may not see improvement in your lupus symptoms or a reduction in the amount of corticosteroids you need to control your symptoms.

To qualify for the EMBODY program you must meet the following criteria:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Diagnosed with lupus
  • Not pregnant or nursing

There are other criteria that you must meet to qualify for participation. The study doctor will explain the study requirements to you. Participation is completely voluntary and may last approximately one year.

The EMBODY program is a clinical research study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational study medication called epratuzumab in people with moderate to severe lupus. While enrolled in the study, you may be allowed to continue taking your current lupus treatments. At the conclusion of your participation, you may be able to enroll in an extension study where everyone will receive epratuzumab at no charge for up to 2 additional years.

To qualify for the EMBODY program, you must be:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Diagnosed with lupus
  • Not pregnant or nursing

Your lupus symptoms may or may not improve during your participation in this clinical research study. Although you may not experience any direct health benefit, the information collected by the research team will help us to determine if epratuzumab can help other people with lupus.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease. When someone has lupus, their immune system cannot tell the difference between foreign substances and the body's own cells and tissues. The antibodies produced by the immune system begin to mistakenly attack healthy tissues in the body. This causes inflammation and pain. Over time, healthy tissues and organs become damaged, which can lead to other health problems.

Symptoms of lupus often fluctuate and can affect many different parts of the body, including the skin, kidneys, joints, heart, lungs and brain. People with lupus may have extended periods of time when they feel better (remission) and periods of time when their symptoms worsen (flare).

While there are several medications that are used to help reduce the signs and symptoms of lupus, there is currently no cure. Clinical research studies such as the EMBODY program are evaluating the safety and effectiveness of investigational medication.
