Reumatología [ES]

Glucocorticoids (GCs) have traditionally been the center of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) treatment and they continue to be recommended by the EULAR and ACR as the first-line therapy for several autoimmune diseases [1–4].

In the last 30 years, the trend has been to add immunosup- pressive drugs in an effort to minimize GC side effects and at the same time to achieve better control of disease activ- ity [5].

Coinciding with the decrease in the use of GC, 5-year survival rate in patients with lupus nephritis has increased from 44% in 1953–1969 to 96% today [6,7].

Lupus low disease activity state includes prednisolone doses 7.5 as definition criteria, recognizing the deleterious effects of GC in SLE prognosis [8].
