I know this topic has probably been covered, but after searching for a while I'm reading conflicting information and thought I would just ask. I'm new to Lupus, my wife has not yet been diagnosed, but it seems very likely as she has shown many of the symptoms over the past few years, and after a recent weird rash and eye inflammation, her doctor has finally brought it up and sent her for more tests. She's very strong and this hasn't seemed to phase her in the least, at least outwardly, but it has for me because I love her very much.
So my question, does anyone have current information on Benlysta, is it still on track to be approved by the end of this year?
I've read great things about it, and bad things, the bad thing being that it has shown that it seems to loose it's effectiveness after about 18 months of use. Is this true? Does anyone have more information about it's effectiveness in clinical trials?
