In a clinical study in Black patients with lupus, a reduction in disease activity was seen but was not statistically significant. Ask your doctor about BENLYSTA.


BENLYSTA is a prescription medicine, given intravenously (IV) or subcutaneously for adults with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) or active lupus nephritis on other lupus medicines.

BENLYSTA IV is approved in children aged 5 years and older with SLE on other lupus medicines. It is not known if BENLYSTA is safe and effective in people with severe active central nervous system lupus.

The BENLYSTA difference

Icon: Lupus Disease Activity

Significantly reduced lupus disease activity

In adult patients with active lupus, adding BENLYSTA significantly reduced lupus disease activity, with improvements mainly in the immune system, muscles, joints, mouth, and skin.*

Icon: Lupus Treatments

Works with other lupus treatment(s)

BENLYSTA is a biologic therapy, not a steroid, and works by targeting an underlying cause of lupus. It’s taken in addition to your other lupus medications.

Icon: Patient population

Studied in diverse patient populations

BENLYSTA has been studied in more clinical trials than any other lupus medicine, including the largest clinical trial in patients with lupus nephritis, and demonstrated a consistent safety profile.

Results may vary. 
*In studies used in the approval of BENLYSTA, when added to other common lupus medications, compared to those medications alone.
