Current and emerging lupus treatments

, : Current and emerging lupus treatments. American Journal of Managed Care 7(16 Suppl): S490-S495

New developments in the treatment of lupus have been lacking until recently. It is hoped that new immunomodulating therapies, including a synthetic form of dehydroepiandrosterone (prasterone), will help reduce the need for steroid treatment among patients with mild-to-moderate disease, thereby reducing the morbidity and cost associated with steroid-related side effects. In addition, newer treatments for more severe systemic lupus erythematosus appear to be on the horizon, the most promising of which include biologic agents. Meanwhile, several improvements have been made to traditional therapies that may also benefit patients.
