Innovations in Lupus Care

Advanced Mechanisms and Clinical Strategies for Managing Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Duration (in hours): 1 hour

Format: Online/In-Person Online

Description: This course explores the latest advancements in understanding and managing Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Learn about lysosomal autophagy, innovative biomarkers for predicting lupus flares, and the potential of peptide P140 in treatment. Featuring selected lectures on Innovations in Lupus Care from the 14th Congress of Autoimmunity, this course equips you with the knowledge and tools to enhance clinical practice and improve patient outcomes in lupus care.


Faculty: Dr. Sylviane Muller, Dr. Luis Inês, Dr. Johan Rönnelid

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the fundamental role of lysosomes in cellular function and their involvement in autophagy and immune responses.
  2.  Investigate the mechanisms of lysosomal dysfunction and its impact on the pathogenesis of SLE.
  3. Learn how to define, assess, and predict lupus flares using both traditional and new clinical instruments.
  4. Understand the significance of immune complexes in SLE, including the limitations of conventional assays and the use of advanced techniques.
  5. Discuss the significance of various biomarkers, such as anti-DNA antibodies, in predicting treatment response and disease activity

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the role of lysosomes and lysosomal autophagy in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
  • Predict and measure lupus flares using validated clinical tools and new instruments like SLED.
  • Identify and analyze innovative biomarkers for lupus flares and treatment response.

Lessons in This Course:

  • Defective lysosomes and lysosomal autophagy in lupus section.
  • Flares in SLE: how to predict and measure in daily clinical practice?
  • Immune complex analyses in systemic lupus erythematosusivig as panacea in autoimmune diseases.

Who it is for/Prerequisites: This course is designed for healthcare professionals, researchers, and clinicians specializing in autoimmune diseases, particularly those focused on systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), as well as medical students and anyone interested in the latest innovations in lupus care.
