A new drug is approved. What’s next?

We finally get to ask that question about lupus, after the FDA approved Benlysta, the first new drug approved for SLE in over 50 years, in March 2011. 

Patients and researchers alike are asking questions …  Who needs to take this drug?  How is it different from the medicines that doctors were already using?  How do we know it’s going to work? How do we know that it’s going to work better than those other medications?
