While significant advances have been made in the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the highly variable manifestations of the disease make treatment difficult. Today, SLE patients have increased survival and reduced rates of end-stage renal disease. Writing in a review published in BMJ Lupus Science & Medicine, Antonis Fanouriakis and George Bertsias point out that treatment remains less than optimal. They review changing paradigms in lupus treatment focusing on unmet needs and revisiting established therapies. In this slideshow, we highlight takeaways from the review.
