Abstract

This article reviews the biologic effects of cyclophosphamide and azathioprine relevant to the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Other agents used less commonly for SLE, such as methotrexate, chlorambucil, and cyclosporin-A, receive more limited attention. Clinical studies of efficacy and toxicity of these agents in their treatment of SLE are then described in detail.
