CLINICAL RESEARCH TRIAL: Belimumab (Benlysta®) Pregnancy Research Study
Participating in a clinical research study contributes to medical knowledge related to the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of diseases or conditions. The results of these studies can make a difference in the care of future patients by providing information about the benefits and risks of therapeutic, preventative or diagnostic products or interventions.
Research is the key to improving the lives of those living with lupus. Now there is a study called the Belimumab (Benlysta®) Pregnancy Registry, which is an observational study that will further evaluate the safety and effectiveness of belimumab (Benlysta®) in women who have been given (exposed to) belimumab (Benlysta®) within the 4 months prior to and/or during pregnancy. The goal of the registry is to evaluate the health of these women until they give birth, and to study the health of their babies until they are 12 months old. Participants will not have to make any extra office visits, take any extra medical tests or medications by taking part in this pregnancy registry.
Learn more about this study evaluating the health of pregnant women with lupus who have received belimumab (Benlysta®) and their babies.

'WIGS of LOVE' Challenge.....launching soon.
'WIGS of Love' Challenge is a permanent ongoing lupus fundraiser. Participation is open to anyone world-wide.
Participants are asked to sponsor and grow their locks to a minimum length of 30 cm and then donate their hair to make medical wigs for the ‘Wigs for Kids’ program supporting kids with lupus, cancer, alopecia areata and other illnesses. As part of the program, the kids are given a voucher to the total amount of $400 to use at selected wig makers.
AND, if you don’t have hair to give, you can still fundraise and we will still provide you with your own fundraising page AND if that seems like too much hard work, you can also donate funds, products for auctions and items for our gift bags for our functions and events. So, there’s plenty of ways to show your support.
(refer to 'WIGS of Love' Challenge for more information)
