Promise of a New Lupus Treatment Is a Groundbreaking Achievement
Date:11/2/2009

uences of the disease. The fruits of that labor are starting to emerge. However, now is not the time for complacency. We must band together for lupus and continue to capitalize on the decades of research made possible through the efforts of the many dedicated researchers, physicians, people with lupus, and advocates.

"This announcement by HGS and GSK and the Overcoming Barriers to Drug Development in Lupus report, commissioned by the Lupus Foundation of America to outline recommendations on ways to overcome the barriers to lupus research, combine to serve as a call to action for a national coordinated effort to accelerate the pace of discovery, to develop more tolerable and effective treatments, and to ultimately find a cure for this perilous disease.

"We congratulate HGS and GSK on reaching this important milestone in lupus research and in the development of new therapies for lupus. We also extend our appreciation to the researchers and study volunteers who made this achievement possible: the physicians who have passionately committed to researching this disease, and the companies that continue to invest in finding new and necessary treatments for this devastating disease."

The next step in the process is for HGS and GSK to submit marketing applications in the United States, Europe and other regions during the first half of 2010. The LFA will closely follow this process, and continue to keep its constituents apprised of developments.

About Lupus

Lupus is an acute and chronic autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ in the body. Its health effects include heart attacks, strokes, seizures, miscarriages, and organ failure. Ninety percent of the people with lupus are women, and it is two to three times more common among African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Native Americans, and Asians. Lupus is unpredictable and
