The objective was to study the relationship between the levels of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) and disease activity and the acute-phase response in SLE patients with and without renal involvement. Twenty SLE patients who had distinct active clinical manifestations (eight glomerulonephritis, four systemic vasculitis without kidney involvement, nine skin rash, 12 arthritis, five serositis, four neuropsychiatric manifestations, three thrombocytopenia, one myositis and one haemolytic… CONTINUE READING
