OBJECTIVE To evaluate the potentially improved therapeutic efficacy and safety of nephrotropic macromolecular prodrugs of glucocorticoids (GCs) for the treatment of lupus nephritis. METHODS Lupus-prone female (NZB × NZW)F1 mice received monthly injections of N-(2-hydroxypropyl) methacrylamide copolymer-based dexamethasone prodrug (P-Dex) or daily(More)
We evaluated the ability of a macromolecular prodrug of dexamethasone (P-Dex) to treat lupus nephritis in (NZB × NZW)F1 mice. We also explored the mechanism underlying the anti-inflammatory effects of this prodrug. P-Dex eliminated albuminuria in most (NZB × NZW)F1 mice. Furthermore, P-Dex reduced the incidence of severe nephritis and extended lifespan in(More)
Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by the production of autoreactive antibodies against nuclear antigens. Women are disproportionately affected by lupus, and this sex bias is thought to be due, in large part, to the ability of estrogens to promote lupus pathogenesis. Previously, we have shown that global deletion of estrogen receptor alpha(More)
