Advances in the pharmacological management of systemic lupus erythematosus.

INTRODUCTION: Despite setbacks in clinical trials for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), three drugs have been approved for SLE and lupus nephritis (LN) treatment in the past decade. Several ongoing clinical trials, some viewed optimistically by the scientific community, underscore the evolving landscape. Emerging clinical data have established specific therapeutic targets in routine clinical practice for treating SLE, aiming to improve long-term outcomes.

AREAS COVERED: Research related to treatment of SLE and LN is discussed, focusing on randomized clinical trials during the last 5 years and recommendations for the management of SLE published by the European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology (EULAR), American College of Rheumatology (ACR), Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology (APLAR), and Pan-American League of Associations of Rheumatology (PANLAR).

EXPERT OPINION: The landscape of SLE and LN treatments is evolving, as new drugs and combination treatment approaches redefine the traditional concepts of induction and maintenance treatment phases. As the therapeutic armamentarium in SLE continues to expand, the research focus is shifting from the imperative for new therapies to advancing our understanding of optimal treatment selection for individual patients, steering toward precision medicine strategies.
