Saphnelo

Saphnelo is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with moderate to severe systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), who are receiving standard therapy.

Saphnelo is the first and only SLE treatment to target type 1 interferon (IFN-1) activity.

Based on three clinical studies, when added to your Lupus treatments, Saphnelo may help reduce disease activity and reduce oral steroid use.

Potential Side Effects

The most common side effects of Saphnelo include upper respiratory infections, bronchitis, infusion reactions, shingles (herpes zoster), and cough. Saphnelo can lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections. You may be at a higher risk of developing respiratory infections and shingles (herpes zoster) during treatment with Saphnelo. Serious allergic reactions can happen during or after you get your Saphnelo infusion. Saphnelo may reduce the activity of your immune system. Medicines that affect the immune system may increase your risk of certain cancers.
