OBJECTIVE To establish the correlation between lupus nephritis-associated autoantibody levels and the presence/activity of lupus nephritis and global disease activity using cross-sectional data in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS Disease activity was assessed using the British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) index. Antibody levels against single-stranded DNA (ssDNA), double-stranded DNA (dsDNA), histones, nucleosomes and heparan sulphate (HS) were analysed by… CONTINUE READING
