Study: Longer-term follow-up needed for patients with SLE in remission

July 28, 2016

Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus showed a 14.5% rate of complete remission for 3 years, with some patients continuing to show flares after 10 years of remission.

“Previous studies have reported different values of incidence and prevalence among patients who achieve remission (which in most publications means clinical remission) in their respective populations,” Carmen V. Medina-Quiñones, MD, from the Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal in Madrid, and colleagues wrote in their study. “The lack of consensus about the criteria for remission has influenced these discordant results.”
