The Dorough Lupus Foundation and Arnold Palmer Hospital have initiated a support group to address the social and emotional needs of adolescents and adults living with lupus in a safe and comfortable atmosphere, staffed with medical professionals and bilingual counselors at Arnold Palmer Hospital. This is a wonderful opportunity for lupus patients and their family members to come and meet other lupus patients, learn more about lupus, share stories, advice and receive a variety of health care information to benefit lupus patients and the entire group.

This month we are very excited to bring you Dr. John Francis, the Director of the Florida Hospital Center for Thrombosis Research. Originally from the United Kingdom, he joined Florida Hospital from Southampton University Medical School in 1994. Dr. Francis' main research and clinical interests are in the areas of anticoagulant (blood-thinning) therapy, complications of heparin treatment, blood clotting and cancer, and novel approaches to the assessment of patients with blood clotting disorders.

He is a member of the International Society for Thrombosis and Haemostasis, The American Society for Hematology, and The American Heart Association. Dr. Francis was the Founding Editor of the International Journal, Blood Coagulation & Fibrinolysis, sits on the Editorial Board of Thrombosis Research and acts as a reviewer for more than 20 other journals in the field of hemostasis, thrombosis and cardiovascular medicine. He is currently Co-Chair of the Thrombosis Study Group of the American Heart Association, and a member of the North American Specialized Coagulation Laboratory Association (NASCOLA).

Dr. Francis acts as a Consultant for several pharmaceutical and diagnostics companies and is a frequent lecturer on many aspects of hemostasis and thrombosis. He has published more than 120 papers in this field.

Thrombosis (a blood clot) is a major cause of death in the western world. In fact, more people die of blood clots than, for example, breast cancer, AIDS and traffic accidents combined. Dr. Francis’ laboratory is involved in diagnosis of the many causes of thrombosis, as well as research into this important area of clinical medicine.

Patients with Lupus often have an increased risk of blood clots. Dr. Francis will talk about the problem of thrombosis in general, and in Lupus patients in particular. He will also talk about the tests his laboratory performs to predict the risk of blood clots in Lupus patients, as well as their research – partly funded by the American Heart Association – to better understand the risk of thrombosis in these individuals.
