Systemic lupus erythematosus is being treated using a combination approach as number of organs are involved. Therefore, various combination therapies are being used to improve quality of life of the patients. Also, combining novel drugs against different organs as well as combination of drugs with biological and biochemical agents may further enhance the treatment quality.
