Lupus Nephritis Recurring Less Often in Transplant Patients Due to Improved Immunosuppression Drugs

American College of Rheumatology (ACR)

Recurrent lupus nephritis, a severe complication for patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with end-stage renal disease who undergo kidney transplant, is happening less often now compared to the past. This positive trend is likely due to improvements in the immunosuppression regimen these patients now receive, according to new research findings presented this week at the 2018 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting.
