    ON-SCREEN TEXT: “Why BENLYSTA?”

    DR. WRIGHT: So, if my peer were to ask me, “Why should I use BENLYSTA? Why should I use it earlier?”, I think back to the fact that our patients are living with a chronic disease – one that they will experience over the course of their lifetime – and if we can initiate therapy that can help to control that disease activity earlier, then I think that’s a good thing to do.

    ON-SCREEN TEXT: “Help control disease activity”

    DR. WRIGHT: When we look at the data, we now have years of data on efficacy, on safety. We have clinical trial data, we have real-world data, the kinds of data that we need to have a discussion with our patients about how this can work for them.

    ON-SCREEN TEXT: Years of data on BENLYSTA

    DR. WRIGHT: And so, if we just think through the data, and think about the impact that we can have on controlling disease activity, it just feels like the right thing to do to help our patients manage something that they have to live with for the rest of their lives.

    ON-SCREEN TEXT: “Help our patients”

    DR. WRIGHT: And so, I think it’s really important to put everything into context about that patient and what they experience and how we can help them improve their disease control.

    DR. WRIGHT: Thank you for watching. Visit the BENLYSTA website for more information.
