    Default I am interested

    Yes- good idea. I will post anything interesting that I find. I read about a drug that was "rituxan" like but being developed especially for SLE. Does anyone remember the name maybe epratuzumab?
    What's the consensus on epratuzumab? (I have not spelled it right)
    thanks

    Here is a link to an article about Epratuzumab - is this what you were referring to? It is a b-cell depletion drug - these drugs were originally developed to treat certain forms of lymphoma marked by b-cell proliferation, but that are also being used to treat lupus. I don't know if any widespread research is underway using this particular drug.
