Aurinia's Voclosporin up for FDA approval to treat Lupus Nephritis!
This is fantastic news! Aurinia Pharmaceuticals has requested FDA approval for their new drug, Voclosporin, specifically designed to treat Lupus Nephritis (LN)!!
This is a HUGE step in the LN community, and we applaud Aurinia's efforts for not only leading the way in drug development, but also in their patient awareness initiative, ALL IN. I invite you to check out that website here, and you can read the press release and more about the drug here.
Thanks to Dr. Don Thomas for the screenshot of his FB graphic below. You can check out (and follow!) his page, as he always posts a ton of helpful information. And if you haven't already, consider grabbing a copy of his book, The Lupus Encyclopedia. It is THE best resource for all things lupus. You can read my review here.
