Changing the Course of Disease in Lupus
Webinar recorded September 28, 2022
Sponsored by GSK
Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) can present with diverse signs and symptoms. SLE is a disease of waxing and waning activity and progressive organ damage. Serious manifestations of the disease, such as lupus nephritis, can increase the risk of flares and loss of kidney function and early end-stage kidney disease. Mean all-cause healthcare costs increase as patients incur organ damage. Impacting disease pathophysiology and drug can modify the natural course of disease and prevent future organ damage.
By the end of the program, participants will be able to:
- Review the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and disease course of lupus.
- Describe the importance and key components of disease modification in lupus.
- Discuss treatment goals and outcomes assessments focused on changing the course of disease.
