|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Nephritis of Lupus||Drug: mycophenolate mofetil or azathioprine Other: immunosuppressive treatment discontinuation||Phase 3|
open multicenter randomized non-inferiority study, comparing 2 types of therapeutic strategies after 2 years of maintenance treatment:
- Group I: Continuation of immunosuppressive therapy with MMF or AZA, with a background therapy with hydroxychloroquine, and possibly low-dose corticosteroids.
- Group II: immunosuppressive treatment discontinuation, continuation of hydroxychloroquine, and possibly low-dose corticosteroids (15 mg / day).

|Study Start Date :||January 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||January 2017|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||August 2017|
|Experimental: immunosuppressive treatment discontinuation,||Other: immunosuppressive treatment discontinuation|
Active Comparator: Continuation of immunosuppressive therapy
with MMF or AZA, with a background therapy with hydroxychloroquine, and possibly low-dose corticosteroids
|Drug: mycophenolate mofetil or azathioprine|
- discontinuation of maintenance immunosuppressive therapy [ Time Frame: 2 years ]to demonstrate that discontinuation of maintenance immunosuppressive therapy does not expose patients to a greater risk of relapse of proliferative lupus nephritis compared to the continuation of this treatment
- compare 2 therapeutic strategies [ Time Frame: 2 years ]to compare 2 therapeutic strategies in terms of relapse-free survival, overall survival , cumulative rate of 'relapse and / or death ', rates of adverse events , evolution of renal function , activity of SLE , consumption of steroids, impact on quality of life and economic impact.
