Lupus erythematosus systemic is an auto-immune disease the evaluation of the activity of which remains very difficult because of an heterogeneousness of the clinical and biological symptoms. The aim of this study is to develop objective, specific and not invasive methods of evaluation of the activity and the forecast of the disease by using an analysis of the transcriptome on circulating blood. A transcriptomic analysis will be realized in parallel by the usual clinico-biological follow-up at the patients affected by systemic lupus, while the diagnosis before treatment, then during every revaluation of the disease during the period of the study. The already treated patients can also be included in this study.
Identify the genes expressed during the disease to allow the calculation of a transcriptomic score and study the correlation of this transcriptionnal score with the SLEDAI score [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
Secondary Outcome Measures
Identify genes correlated in various histological classes of lupus renal disease and types of pushes of the disease; to allow the calculation of a transcriptomic score and its correlation with the BILAG score [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
