    Bring it on!!!!!
    That's great news for all of us. Once it's approved, hopefully we can start living again. These days, I feel as though I exist, but not living...

    From my research, i have learned that Benlysta is administered by infusion, and the estimated cost is $10,000 to $30,000 per patient per year. There are some pretty serious possible side effects mostly in the respiratory area. But, there has been about a %41 improvement in lupus symptoms among the participants who were Benlysta. If all goes as they hope, the medication will be available around the middle of next year. I hope this stuff really works, and that they can make it affordable for us.
