Urinary effector memory T-lymphocytes may be predictive for clinical outcome in patients with lupus nephritis. The investigators hypothesize that the amount of CD4+ effector memory T cells in urine at time of diagnosis predicts the outcome of patients with active lupus nephritis (LN) after 6 months of therapy. In a prospective, six-months follow-up study patients' urine will be analysed by flow cytometry every 60 days (+/- 10d). Treatment will be performed to the discretion of the treating clinician. After 6 months of treatment response will be determined as either complete response or partial response.

The activation of the nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) signaling pathway gives rise to inflammation in the pathogenesis of lupus nephritis (LN), with A20 serving as a negative feedback regulator and ubiqui...
Glomerulonephritis associated with autoimmune disease SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS. Lupus nephritis is histologically classified into 6 classes: class I - normal glomeruli, class II - pure mesangial alterations, class III - focal segmental glomerulonephritis, class IV - diffuse glomerulonephritis, class V - diffuse membranous glomerulonephritis, and class VI - advanced sclerosing glomerulonephritis (The World Health Organization classification 1982).
A technique encompassing morphometry, densitometry, neural networks, and expert systems that has numerous clinical and research applications and is particularly useful in anatomic pathology for the study of malignant lesions. The most common current application of image cytometry is for DNA analysis, followed by quantitation of immunohistochemical staining.
