Background: Lupus nephritis (LN) is a serious manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus. Induction immunosuppression can include high dose cyclophosphamide (NIH protocol), low dose cyclophosphamide (Euro-lupus protocol) or mycophenolate mofetil (MMF). We aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of the 3 induction regimens in
Egyptian patients with LN.
