IT'S A BANNER DAY!
The US FDA has approved Benlysta for the treatment of Lupus.
It is the first new treatment in 56 years.
I am so happy for all my friends and "cohorts in crime" :) that this may help. The studies look promising, so hopefully....
The only sad part of the trial [link here] is that it doesn't seem to have an effect on certain Lupus sufferers, so the company has agreed to work harder to make a derivation of this drug to help them too. My fingers are crossed and my prayers are with them that this gets fixed.
