The company presented preliminary data from its Lupus Interval Monitoring to Manage Disease Flare and Enable Treatment Optimization, or LIFT study, at the Personalized Medicine World Congress last month. The company is hoping this study will help it discover a transcriptional biomarker signature that can enable from-home genomic monitoring of lupus patients.
