Summary of "Target Therapy in SLE."

The intention of this paper is to review actual developments in target therapy in SLE. Target therapy includes both the objective of intervention and the aim of treatment. The objective should be linked to the pathophysiologic process of SLE; the aim has to be in any case an improved outcome. The current therapeutic in SLE is guided mostly by secondary prevention. In SLE, besides a BASIC concept with antimalarials, bone and sun protection, vaccination and cardiovascular risk minimising, treatment waits for new manifestations to be started to prevent secondarily damage. With the new treatment target remission, treatment should aim at ensuring long-term survival, preventing organ damage and optimizing health-related quality-of-life by controlling disease activity and minimising comorbidities and drug toxicity. First examples show that some patients are in remission and that those patients have a better outcome. But for treat-to-target a strategy needs to be developed that needs to be evaluated.
