Go straight to the Preface at the beginning of the book. It gives similar, practical information as on this page. However, it provides practical information on how to use the book. My book offers more helpful, accurate information than what you find on the internet.
However, one outdated item in the 1st edition of “The Lupus Encyclopedia” is that the dosing for hydroxychloroquine (HCQ, Plaquenil) has changed. We currently use no more than 5 mg/kg of actual body weight. We can also measure HCQ drug levels to help us with proper dosing.
In addition, it does not discuss the newest FDA-approved drugs for lupus: anifrolumab (Saphnelo), voclosporin (Lupkynis), nor does it talk about the new FDA-approved indications for using belimumab (Benlysta). The FDA approved Belimumab for children with lupus as young as 5 years old and for adults with lupus nephritis (kidney inflammation).
The 2nd edition of “The Lupus Encyclopedia” will contain this information and much more. A team of world experts on lupus and myself are currently working on the 2nd edition. I will announce when it will be ready for publication as soon as we near that point. However, this will probably not occur until around October 2022 or later.
