Can a Woman with Lupus Have a Healthy Baby?

ReachMD—March 30, 2009

Twenty years ago, women who suffered from lupus were discouraged from having children; today women with lupus are successfully having healthy babies. Doctors have found that counseling lupus patients prior to conception significantly increases the chances of a healthy pregnancy.

Jane E. Salmon, MD, Collette Kean Research Chair at Hospital for Special Surgery, joined host Dr. Lisa Mazzullo to talk about her groundbreaking research for pregnant women dealing with this autoimmune disease.

This show aired on ReachMD on XM Radio and can be accessed as an audio stream or a downloadable podcast via the ReachMD website.

For more information about Dr. Salmon's research, read the clinical trial entry for the PROMISSE study at HSS.
