The Stevens-Johnson Syndrome Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1996. The purpose of the foundation is to provide the public and medical communities with information on adverse drug reactions. Our goal is to make the public aware of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), so that a quick diagnosis may be made and the offending drug stopped as soon as possible. Allergic drug reactions are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. We are working with medical professionals on SJS research to identify causes, genetic markers and treatment plans.
We also provide emotional support for people with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis.
August is SJS Awareness Month. Please visit our Facebook page to help spread awareness of severe adverse drug reactions. Educate before you medicate. Find out about Stevens-Johnson Syndrome before it finds someone you love.
