Disease Activity in Pediatric Lupus Nephritis May Possibly Be Monitored with Urine Biomarkers

From Lupus News Today:

Researchers have discovered a potential new noninvasive measurement for the management of lupus nephritis in pediatric and young adult patients that may help not only keep track of disease progression but also monitor therapeutic responses.

The study, “Development of a Novel Renal Activity Index of Lupus Nephritis in Children and Young Adults,” was published in the journal Arthritis Care and Research.
