Hydroxychloroquine, corticosteroids, and conventional immunosuppressants are the mainstay of treatment for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a chronic, complex autoimmune disease affecting multiple organ systems. Unfortunately, many patients with SLE fail to respond to the aforementioned therapies and/or experience significant adverse events. Clinicians use other agents to treat these patients, such as biologics Benlysta (GSK) and Rituxan (Roche/Biogen; off-label).
