Does anyone have any experience with abatacept for their lupus? My rheumatologist is looking into this drug for me. Phase II or III clinical trials were just completed in november but I can't find data from them anywhere. I am somewhat frustrated because I'm up to 20mg metho +hydroxychloroquine and have needed 20+ doses of prednisone. Right now I'm not on the prednisone (I have a broken foot that won't heal with the prednisone) but am having fevers, night sweats, fatigue, malar rash and joint pain should soon follow.
