There’s a Lupus Nephritis Forum on July 24!

received_10153416530558798Lupus Nephritis (LN), a common manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus, affects 50-60% of patients with the disease at one point of their illness. It is a serious problem – although, it’s symptoms are not always dramatic (if you’ve been watching morning TV lately, you get what I mean). And as such, rheumatologists and nephrologists often work together to bring about better outcomes. Over the years, knowledge of this condition has markedly improved. And far from just giving steroids and either cyclophosphamide or mycophenolate mofetil, newer modalities are now being used to treat it. If you’re a rheumatologist, nephrologist or any doctor with interests in this condition. Come join us on July 24, 2015 at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City as we revisit one of our “bread-and-butter” conditions. Please contact our secretariat (Ms. Maricris Ocampo) at 0917-5833684 or 726-8875 if you plan on attending as the organizers have important pre-requisites for attending.
