The British Society for Rheumatology guideline for the management of systemic lupus erythematosus in adults

The resulting recommendations are based on an extensive review of the literature up to June 2015 to produce evidence-based guidelines, particularly for the treatment of non-renal lupus, supplemented as necessary by expert opinion and consensus agreement.
