Lupus Foundation of America Statement on Results for Clinical Study,of CellCept Released by Aspreva Pharmaceutical Company

overall improvement in care for lupus nephritis patients. In line with this, the LFA is eager to see some subset analysis, for example, an analysis of how CellCept performs in patients of African descent, since IVC is known to be less effective for this population.

The preliminary data from Aspreva suggest that overall incidence of side effects were the same for CellCept and IVC. This is expected when all major and minor side effects are counted equally. However, there is a large body of published literature with convincing evidence that CellCept is better tolerated, and, more importantly to patients and their doctors, is associated with fewer serious or life-threatening infections, and hospitalizations. IVC is also linked to a high incidence of infertility, which is not the case with CellCept. We eagerly await further data from this new trial on these kinds of side effects, which patients and doctors are most concerned about.

The results released today are only preliminary findings. The LFA looks forward to further analysis of the data and will report this information as soon as it becomes available.

About the LFA: The Lupus Foundation of America is the nation's leading nonprofit voluntary health organization dedicated to finding the causes and cure for lupus. The LFA and its nationwide network of nearly 300 chapters, branches and support groups operate programs of research, education, support and advocacy.
