    Thanks for posting this because you never know who missed it before!

    We have been waiting for Benlysta for what seems like forever. The FDA FINALLY approved it this last week. If you put the word Benlysta in the search box you will find several topics about it. We are still trying to figure out exactly who tihs new medicinen will help but there is a great thread about it found
    here http://forum.wehavelupus.com/showthr...light=Benlysta

    and even more outside the forum found http://www.LupusTrials.org

    The really good news is that this is the first new drug for over 50 years and it opens the door to several more within the next 2 to 3 years! It seems to lessen the need for as many meds in people with moderate to severe lupus. That is awesome considering I personally take 12 a day!
