Lupus article[edit]

To support health-related encyclopedia content, we have formulated a guideline that helps editors select the best sources. Typically, these are "secondary sources" (reviews and textbooks). I recommend you have a look at WP:MEDRS, the guideline in question, and WP:MEDMOS (the medical manual of style). Let me know if I can be of any further assistance. Good to have you on board!

You really should follow my advice and read MEDRS. What you're adding is a mouse study from 10 years ago. That is not a great source, even if it's free. The kind of source we're looking for is a recent review in a high-profile journal or a textbook. Lupus has been reviewed several times in the Lancet and NEJM in the last few years, so there is really no need to use the source you have been adding.
Incidentally, please do not simultaneously edit from a registered account as well as an IP address. I have temporarily locked editing for non-autoconfirmed users so I can guide you through this. JFW | T@lk 18:14, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
