  1. I have read some articles which mention that there could be some new lupus treatments on the horizon. I have to say that this is a really informative blog! This may be coming a little late, but I wanted to share this lupus infographic with you (it’s titled Get in the Loop – Raising Awareness for Lupus). It was created last month in honor of National Lupus Awareness month, and I thought that you might find it interesting. Thanks!
