Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Systemic lupus erythematosus or SLE is a multisystemic disorder. The disease is not treatable but the progression of the disease can be monitored and kept in control (at least to some extent). Various scales have been set up to evaluate the disease activity. Probably you are talking about such a score. For example, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index-2000 is a score used to define active disease. The details can be found at:
