Subacute/discoid lupus erythematosus


Discoid / Subacute Lupus Erythematosus - A Complex Disease


Welcome to the Diex Recherche website for a research study on discoid and subacute lupus.

We are recruiting volunteers with discoid or subacute lupus to participate in a clinical research trial.

The clinical manifestations and the mode of onset of the disease vary from one subject to another and may include fatigue, fever, muscle and joint pain. You may also experience a rash on the face due to exposure to the sun, hair loss in some cases, inflammatory lesions around the vessels, or skin ulcers..

The disease is characterized by alternating remissions and relapses, depending on the season in most cases.

If you are interested in participation you must:

  • Be between 18 and 80 years old
  • Have a history of subacute lupus erythematosus or discoid/chronic lupus erythematosus (with active lesions) for at least three months

The study process in pictures


Step 1 | Before starting the study, we will take time to fully explain the selection process and the conduct of the study by phone.


Step 2 | After the initial phone interview, if you are still interested in taking part in a study, we schedule a preliminary meeting with you during which you may ask all the questions you wish and take the time you require to read over the consent form. This form explains, in detail, the different stages of each study.


Step 3 | You may make a decision at that time to move forward with or terminate the selection process. However, you are under no obligation to make an immediate decision. Based on briefing content, you may take the time necessary to come to a decision and consult with your personal physician or loved ones.


Step 4 | Depending on the nature of the study, some tests or medical examinations may be required. In the majority of cases, these tests or examinations are conducted on Diex Research premises based on your individual availability.


Step 5 | If you are eligible, you may then begin a clinical study with us.
