The Myositis Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and The Myositis Association. It is intended to provide information on Myositis and help people with Myositis find assistance paying for their medications.
Myositis is a rare, chronic autoimmune disease that causes muscle weakness and often attacks the organs. Its cause is unknown, but there is both a genetic and environmental component. More than 50,000 people in the U.S. have myositis, also called idiopathic inflammatory myopathy. There are four historically-established types: dermatomyositis, polymyositis, inclusion-body myositis and juvenile myositis, but as scientists learn more about antibody differences, additional sub-types have been proposed. The Myositis Association's mission is to increase program support to the myositis patient and caregiver community; increase awareness of myositis throughout the general population with emphasis on the medical community, and increase funding for TMA operations and myositis-related research.
