As a result, treatment was changed to belimumab which achieved an excellent response characterized by a normalization of complement levels, a reduction in anti-ds-DNA ab and SLEDAI values, and a nearly complete resolution of the patient's clinical manifestations (9).
The mean SLEDAI in 26 such admissions in 12 patients was 10.58.
The median SLEDAI score of these SLE patients was 9 (6, 12), and the actual median dose of corticosteroids was 15 (10, 45) mg/d.
The inclusion criteria were patients diagnosed as SLE based on the criteria of American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 1997, active SLE (SLEDAI > 3), and 25(OH)D level < 30 ng/ml.
in 2013 described another cohort of five patients with SLE presenting with PRES, all of which had hypertension and moderate-to-severe SLEDAI disease activity [5].
The SLE Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI) was used for the assessment of disease activity.
Clinical and biological data of individual patients were collected, including age, sex, hematological changes, anti-double stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (anti-dsDNA) antibody titers, plasma C3 levels and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI).
