|Official Title:||Evaluation and Prediction of Relapse Risk After Glucocorticoid Withdrawal in Patients With Stable Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: An Open-labeled Multi-centric Randomized Controlled Study From China|
|Study Start Date :||October 2016|

|Estimated Study Completion Date :||June 2020|
Experimental: Full withdrawal
Intervention: 'Drug free'.
Other: Drug free
Both Glucocorticoid(GC) and hydroxychloroquine(HCQ) treatment are stopped in stable SLE patients.
Experimental: GC withdrawal
Intervention: 'HCQ' .
Glucocorticoid(GC) treatment is stopped in stable SLE patients. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is kept as 0.2-0.4g/d
Other Name: Hydroxychloroquine
Experimental: No withdrawal
Intervention: 'GC+HCQ' .
Glucocorticoid(GC) is kept no more than 7.5mg/d. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is kept as 0.2-0.4g/d.
- Percent of subjects with mild to moderate Lupus flare evaluated by modified SELENA-SLEDAI flare index (SFI) [ Time Frame: 33 weeks ]The SFI includes three elements: the SELENA-SLEDAI score (range 0 ~105, with 0 indicating inactive disease and ); an assessment of new or worsening disease activity, medication changes, and hospitalizations that not captured with the use of the SLEDAI; and the score on the physician's global-assessment (PGA) visual-analogue scale (range, 0 to 3, 1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=severe); Mild to moderate flare by SFI is defined as appearance of one of the following: a change in SLEDAI>3 points but≤12 points; or new onset/worse of cutaneous/ mucosal injury (discoid, photosensitivity, profundus, cutaneous vasculitis, bullous lupus, Nasopharyngeal ulcers), serositis (pleuritis and/or pericarditis), arthritis, SLE associated fever; or the need to increase prednisone dosage to no more than 0.5 mg/kg/day; or the need to add hydroxychloroquine or NSAIDs with no increase in the dose GC; or an increment of PGA ranges from 1.0 to 2.5.
- Percent of subjects with a SELENA-SLEDAI maintaining at <4 points [ Time Frame: 33 weeks ]
- Mean change in PGA [ Time Frame: 33 weeks ]The PGA is a visual analog scale scored from 0 to 3. A score of 1 corresponds to mild lupus disease activity; A score of 2 correlates with moderate disease activity and a score of 3 with severe disease activity
- • Percent of subjects with at least one B in any system evaluated with The British Isles Lupus Activity Group (BILAG) scoring system [ Time Frame: 33 weeks ]BILAG includes 9 systems (constitutional, mucocutaneous, neuropsychiatric, musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, gastrointestinal, ophthalmic, renal and haematological). A to E scoring is based on the physician's intention to treat: Grade A: treatment requiring any of the following 1) high dose oral glucocorticoids, eg: prednisolone>20mg/day; 2) intravenous pulse glucocorticoids, eg: pulse methylprednisolone ≥ 500 mg；3)systemic immunomodulators (include biologicals, immunoglobulins and plasmapheresis)；4) therapeutic high dose anticoagulation, eg: warfarin INR 3 - 4; Grade B: treatment requiring any of the following treatment:1) low dose oral glucocorticoids, eg: prednisolone ≤ 20mg/day; 2) intramuscular or intra-articular or soft tissue glucocorticoids injection; 3) topical glucocorticoids;4) topical immunomodulators; 5) antimalarials or thalidomide;6) symptomatic therapy; eg: NSAIDs; Grade C: mild disease; Grade D: inactive now but previously affected; Grade E: systems never involved
