Description of the Webinar

The generation of robust evidence from well-designed, well-powered randomised trials is the conceptual underpinning of contemporary medicine. Nephritis affects more than half of patients with lupus during their disease course and has a substantial impact on prognosis. Randomised trials in lupus have addressed the role of agents in remission induction and maintenance. Recent interest has focussed on pathophysiological pathways and the associated development of biologics. This talk will provide an overview of recent randomised trials in lupus nephritis.
