CD19 CAR T-Cell therapy in autoimmune disease - A case series with follow-up

N Engl J Med 2024;390(8):687–700 DOI 10.1056/NEJMoa2308917

In this case series by Müller, et al., eight patients who received a CD19 CAR T-cell infusion achieved Definition of Remission in SLE (DORIS) remission, Lupus Low Disease Activity State and a SLEDAI 2K score of 0 at 6 months post-infusion. Long-term follow-up through 24 months showed that SLE disease activity remained absent
in all eight patients.

Lupus low disease activity state and organ damage in relation to quality of life in systemic lupus erythematosus: A cohort study with up to 11 years of follow-up

Rheumatology 2024 DOI 10.1093/rheumatology/keae120 Epub ahead of print

Patients with a lupus low disease activity state (LLDAS) irrespective of organ damage were significantly more likely to have favourable health-related quality of life, pain, fatigue, and overall health experience.

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.

Lupus Low Disease Activity State Attainment in the Phase 3 TULIP Trials of Anifrolumab in Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Ann Rheum Dis. 2023. doi: 10.1136/ard-2022-222748

Post-hoc anaylsis of TULIP trials shows that, compared with placebo, anifrolumab treatment was associated with earlier, more frequent, and more prolonged and sustained lupus low disease activity state (LLDAS).

Flares after Hydroxychloroquine Reduction or Discontinuation: Results from the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC) Inception Cohort

Ann Rheum Dis. 2021:annrheumdis-2021-221295. Epub ahead of print

Evidence suggests that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) reduction/withdrawal may be safe in some stable patients, but in other settings it may be associated with disease flare. Almeida-Brasil, et al. sought to evaluate SLE flares following HCQ reduction or discontinuation versus HCQ maintenance. Their data suggest that maintaining HCQ was associated with a lower flare risk than reduction or discontinuation, even in patients with low disease activity or remission.
