Abstract

Maintenance immunosuppressive drug therapy is necessary to counter the propensity of lupus nephritis to relapse. Claims that mycophenolate mofetil might be the magic bullet for both induction and maintenance therapies merit critical reappraisal due to inconsistent evidence of the superiority of mycophenolate mofetil over azathioprine, as well as its inordinately greater cost.
