Compared with polyclonal mock-transduced regulatory T cells (Tregs), Smith(Sm)-Tregs potently suppress Sm-specific pro-inflammatory responses in vitro and suppress disease progression in a humanised mouse model of lupus nephritis.

Impact of Low Disease Activity, Remission, and Complete Remission on Flares Following Tapering of Corticosteroids and Immunosuppressive Therapy in Patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematous: A Multinational Cohort Study

The Lancet Rheumatology, 2023, Volume 5, Issue 10, e584 - e593 DOI:

In this study, tapering of corticosteroids or immunosuppressive therapy in patients in LLDAS, remission, or complete remission was associated with excess flares versus continuing with therapy. Tapering in complete remission was associated with lower odds of flares compared with tapering in LLDAS or remission. In addition, patients with longer sustained duration of LLDAS or remission at the time of tapering had lower odds of flare and longer time to flare versus those with a shorter duration of LLDAS or remission.
