Exagen Announces Five-Week Campaign for Lupus Awareness Month
SAN DIEGO, May 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exagen Inc. (Nasdaq: XGN), a leading provider of autoimmune testing solutions, today announced, in recognition of Lupus Awareness Month, the launch of a five-week awareness campaign to highlight important and impactful work being done to help those suffering from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
For each of the five weeks in the month of May, Exagen will focus on a different theme that, when combined, provides a holistic view of the work being done within the lupus community. These themes include:
- Diagnosis: highlighting the role and importance of an early and accurate diagnosis.
- Advocacy: sharing the stories of patient advocates, and their impact on the community.
- Community: shedding light on the regional and local efforts bringing people together.
- Research: providing insight into the future of lupus diagnostics and therapies.

To better deliver on these initiatives, and to properly shed light on the challenges those with lupus face, Exagen is partnering with the Lupus Foundation of America, Lupus LA, and patient advocates throughout the month.
Ron Rocca, President and CEO of Exagen, shared, “The landscape of lupus therapies and testing has changed over the past few years. We’re in a position now where we can make a real impact for those suffering from lupus, not only through a shorter diagnosis timeframe, but with a more individualized approach. Spreading awareness of what that impact looks like is imperative. We are thrilled to be working with our partners to promote that awareness.”
