Hi all-
Just checked my email and this was sent to me this afternoon from local support group.

Dr. Meenakshi Jolly on ABC 7 tonight at 10:00 pm

The LFAI's own Medical Advisory Board Member, Dr. Meenakshi Jolly, will be on ABC 7 tonight at 10 pm. Dr. Jolly will talk about Benlysta, the first potential lupus specific drug.  Benlysta was successful in the first of two pivitol clinical trials!

Benlysta is the first drug trial ever to reach its primary outcome measure!  A lupus treatment is within sight!  For more information on Benlysta, please click here.

is the link about the Benlysta I dont think the click here link above will work since I copied this. Sounds very promising- but who knows what the cost will be! Maybe they will have good info on the program tonight.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Dx: UCTD vs autoimmune spondyloarthropathy vs psoriatic arthritis (ie Limbo x5 yrs) Raynaud's, proteinuria
Rx: Plaquenil 400mg, Ultram PRN, Sulfasalazine 2 gram
