Can lupus be cured?

Generally, lupus is considered a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by unpredictable exacerbations and remissions. Effective treatment is intended to produce a remission before the illness produces significant organ damage although frank cure is not typical. Although the most serious episodes of lupus occur in the first several years and later serious disease flares are less frequent and severe. A goal of future treatments, combining current conventional approaches such as steroids plus cytotoxics with biologically therapy for the most severe forms of lupus may more likely achieve long lasting remissions and possibly cures.
