Clinical Trial + Cellcept - Could this be a good fit for you?

Check out this Lupus clincial trial, sponsored by Hoffmann-Roche, the folks who bring us Cellcept - my favorite!  They are currently accepting participants for NOBILITY, a Phase II research trial.  I like this one in particular because patients remain on Cellcept as part of the study.

Here are details, and a few of the criteria for participation. Click here to go straight to the clinical trial website. As always, discuss the study thoroughly with your doctor to determine if this trial might be for you!
