Brief Answer: Continue Treatment. Good Prognosis. Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. For the Last 4 years medical treatment for Lupus Nephritis is greatly improved because of advent of the Immunosuppresive drugs and proper use of Steroids in selected cases. During the 1950s, the 5-year survival rate among patients with lupus nephritis was close to 0%. Recent document says 5- and 10-year survival rates for Lupus nephritis on treatment as high as 85% and 73%, respectively. Thus need not worry about your wife. Take care of her health. Please continue the Immuno suppresive treatment with Cyclophosphomide and steroids. Hope this helps. Wishing you good health. Please reply for further queries. Regards, Dr.Manejth XXXXXXX G
