  • TREATMENT OF LUPUS NEPHRITIS WITH TOTAL LYMPHOID IRRADIATION - OBSERVATIONS DURING A 12-79-MONTH FOLLOW-UP ARTHRITIS AND RHEUMATISM Strober, S., Farinas, M. C., Field, E. H., SOLOVERA, J. J., Kiberd, B. A., Myers, B. D., Hoppe, R. T. 1988; 31 (7): 850-858

    Abstract:

    Seventeen patients with intractable lupus nephritis and nephrotic syndrome were treated with total lymphoid irradiation. Statistically significant improvement in mean renal disease and serologic activity parameters occurred within 3 months and persisted for at least 3 years. Although there was a marked reduction of T helper cell numbers and function after total lymphoid irradiation, recovery of these parameters was not associated with a return of disease activity. Risks of sterility, severe infections, and hematologic malignancy appeared to be lower than with alkylating agents.
