Explore a Clinical Research Study for Your Lupus

The Tulip Program is a series of clinical research studies evaluating an investigational drug for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). If you have been living with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), commonly known as lupus, you may be eligible to participate in the Tulip SLE Study. The goal of the Tulip SLE Study is to find out whether an investigational drug may help reduce symptoms of lupus and limit the need for other medications. During the study period, participants will be allowed to take their currently prescribed lupus medications.
