LRI Scientific Advisor Dr. David Pisetsky Raises Awareness for Lupus on CBSNews.com

Read what LRI’s Scientific Advisor David Pisetsky, MD told CBSNews.com reporter Michelle Castillo about lupus in a story on inflammatory vasculitis as  the particular autoimmune disease that proved fatal for actor Harold Ramis.  Inflammatory vasculitis causes inflammation of the blood vessels. Bringing attention to lupus, Dr. Pisetsky noted, “Because vessel inflammation is a feature of some of these more common autoantibody diseases like lupus, quite a bit of research has been done on autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis despite not many people having the disorder.” We thank Dr. Pisetsky for his help in informing the public about autoimmune disease.
