Throwing lupus for a loop

Lupus, an autoimmune disease primarily affecting women of childbearing age, is treated with steroids that often leave patients susceptible to infections, diabetes, and high blood pressure. A new study in non-human primates reports that treatment with specific antibodies can reverse established disease without the side effects associated with current steroid-based therapies.
