60 CONCLUSIONS Outcomes in SLE patients have changed over the years. Decreased survival was initially from disease activity. Medical treatment advances have led to improved survival, but SLE patients still have a three times higher risk of death than the general population. The trend toward improved survival is also counterbalanced by accrual of organ damage. Physicians must adequately address disease activity and minimize disease damage. Inclusion of patient-reported outcomes in the assessment of disease control has also become a priority.

8 Case series of ANA-negative patients suggest a higher frequency of photosensitive rash and milder renal and central nervous system (CNS) disease than ANA-positive patients. Disease manifestations and course in patients with undetectable ANA may otherwise be typical of classical SLE. 8 Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. 00005-X Copyright © 2016 Elsevier Inc.
