New Published Guidelines to Help Physicians Diagnose and Treat Lupus Kidney Disease
Date:5/4/2012

guidelines to help them make therapeutic decisions and to ensure that certain helpful strategies are not overlooked. However, the ultimate therapeutic plan will still be determined case by case by the patient and their physician."

The Lupus Research Institute is also strongly committed to improving early diagnosis and treatment of lupus nephritis by funding innovative research on the mechanisms of kidney damage and novel ways to monitor lupus nephritis; read more on LRI grants completed or in progress focusing on lupus nephritis. Most recently, discoveries from LRI-funded studies include biomarkers to diagnose and assess lupus nephritis while avoiding the need for invasive surgical biopsy. A new LRI study by Dr. Janusz Kabarowski, University of Alabama, Birmingham investigates the possibility of harnessing the anti-inflammatory properties of high-density lipoproteins (good cholesterol HDL) to protect the heart and blood vessels, and stem the immune system's attack on other vital organs including the kidneys.

"Because so many of our patients suffer from kidney disease, LRI scientific studies in the field of lupus nephritis are robust," noted LRI President Margaret Dowd. "We will support the ACR's efforts to educate patients and professionals on the need for early screening for lupus kidney disease when the condition is most treatable."
