Session Type: ACR Poster Session C
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: To Compare the induction therapy of lupus nephritis with cyclophosphamide (CYC) high dose or low dose and identify possible predictors of disease remission.
|CYC HIGH DOSE GROUP||CYC LOW DOSE GROUP|
|Achieved Remission n(%)||26 (74%)||9 (45%)||p=0,03|
|Did not achieved remission n(%)||9 (26%)||11 (55%)|
Conclusion: The group of patients undergoing CYC high dose induction therapy achieved higher frequency of remission than the group with low dose of CYC after the induction therapy period. We did not found any predictor of renal remission.
