Jourde-Chiche N, et al. Ann Rheum Dis. 2022. Epub ahead of print. doi:10.1136/annrheumdis-2022-222435.
Non-inferiority of maintenance immunosuppressive therapy (IST) discontinuation after 2‒3 years was not demonstrated for renal relapse, in proliferative lupus nephritis (LN).
N Engl J Med. 2020;383(12):1117–28.
LN occurs in 25–60% of patients with SLE. However, patients with LN are often excluded from clinical trials of SLE therapies.
