Anti-rituximab antibodies demonstrate neutralising capacity, associate with lower circulating drug levels and earlier relapse in lupus
AbstractObjectives. High rates of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) to rituximab have been demonstrated in patients undergoing ...
✅ Very happy to report that we have started a multilateral discussion to harmonize the way antinuclear antibodies (ANA) testing results are communicated to physicians and patients. This is absolutely crucial to decrease diagnosis delays for #autoimmune diseases such as #lupus 👍
We are what we eat .. and this is also true for our immune system including #Treg cells in #SLE. See our paper with @GeorgeTsokos out now in @ScienceAdvances 🔓 https://tinyurl.com/ymvam4x3 see thread
The Portuguese Lupus Association was born in 1992. Since then, they have provided #SLE patients with all kinds of support (even financial). Did you know they even have a house where patients can stay when they have appointments in Lisbon? Get to know more! https://buff.ly/3Voj6Ak

✅ SAVE THE DATE for a #WEBINAR about #Lupus and #FATIGUE that we will organize for @ern_reconnet with @LouKawka on the 18th of January 2023 at 17:00 (CET) [which is 11:00 EST]. WE WILL PRESENT THE RESULTS OF THE #LEAF study about fatigue in #SLE 👍
Anti-drug antibodies (ADA) can be produced after administration of biological therapies.
ADA to RTX are common in SLE patients & demonstrate neutralising capacity & associate with ⬇️circulating drug levels & earlier relapse.
