Eight patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (S.L.E.) have been treated with plasmapheresis. In four patients in whom immunochemical studies indicated high levels of circulating immune complexes, the removal of 5-8 litres of plasma weekly produced a striking clinical and immunochemical improvement. The four other patients, with only minor complement disturbances and no direct evidence of circulating immune complexes, could not be shown to benefit from plasmapheresis and one patient in this… Expand
Plasmapheresis in systemic lupus erythematosus: a cautionary note.
TLDR
Plasmapheresis without concomitant therapy may be detrimental to certain patients with systemic lupus erythematosus. Expand
Plasmapheresis in active systemic lupus erythematosus: effects on clinical, serum, and cellular abnormalities. Case report.
TLDR
Plasmapheresis may be useful in selected patients who have life-threatening disease associated with undesired circulating antibodies and who are not responsive to conventional doses of corticosteroid or cytotoxic drug therapy. Expand

TLDR
The use of newer technologies, like immunoadsorption, possibly in combination with recent biologics, might, in the future, offer some new perspectives for extracorporeal therapy of systemic lupus erythematosus. Expand
Case Report Response of Lupus Nephritis to Plasmapheresis without Demonstration of Circulating Immune Complexes
TLDR
Large volume plasmapheresis led to immediate improvement and a dramatic return of renal function in a 25-year-old Mexican-American woman with post-partum SLE. Expand
Therapeutic plasmapheresis in systemic lupus erythematosus. Effect on immune complexes and antibodies to DNA.
TLDR
In 8 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, plasmapheresis was followed by a rapid rebound of complexes and antibody to pretreatment levels and a sustained immunochemical and clinical improvement followed, lasting in 2 cases for up to 3 years. Expand
PLASMA EXCHANGE IN THE TREATMENT OF SEVERE, CHILDHOOD ONSET SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS
TLDR
Plasma exchange was used in the treatment of a 10‐year‐old girl with acute systemic lupus erythematosus, and appeared to have a long‐lasting effect in combination with immunosuppressive drugs. Expand
Plasma Exchange in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Experience in Thirty-seven Patients
TLDR
The results were good in the active stage of the disease and close collaboration with the clinicians is urged with the aim of applying immunosuppressive therapy immediately after P.E.C. to consolidate the results obtained. Expand
Plasma exchange in systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
Standard treatment for severe systemic lupus erythematosus consists of corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs and immunoadsorption, especially employing an anti-immunoglobulin adsorber, appears to represent a further useful technological advance. Expand
Severe infections in plasmapheresis-treated systemic lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
Among SLE patients treated with plasmapheresis and I.V. CYC, life-threatening bacterial and viral infections and mortality occur more frequently than among patients with similarly active SLE treated with I. V. CYL alone. Expand
Plasma exchange in systemic lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
On the evidence plasma exchange alone does not appear to represent an important part of the long-term management of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus but may well be of value in combination with other therapy. Expand

Anticomplementary sera in cutaneous vasculitis
TLDR
Five of the eleven anticomplementary sera contained immune complexes in the form of mixed cryoglobulins, suggesting that the vasculitis may be due to circulating immune complexes. Expand
INTENSIVE ANTENATAL PLASMAPHERESIS IN SEVERE RHESUS ISOIMMUNISATION
TLDR
Intensive antenatal plasmapheresis can significantly lower Rh-antibody levels in the blood of mothers carrying babies severely affected with rhesus haemolytic disease, and results were rather poor, but excellent results were obtained when severe disease developed relatively late in pregnancy.
