Abstract

Objective. Whether and when is it possible to completely stop immunosuppression in patients with lupus nephritis is still poorly defined. Methods. An attempt to slowly and progressively eliminate steroids and immunosuppressive drugs was tried in 73 of 161 (45.3%) patients with lupus nephritis who achieved a stable clinical remission defined as normal serum creatinine, proteinuria
