In recent years, the research on the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has been deepened, from the level of histopathology to the cellular and molecular biology, thus promoting the progress of SLE drug therapeutics. In March 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the humanized monoclonal antibody, Belimumab for the treatment of SLE and put an end to the dilemma of no new drug available to SLE for more than half a century. On the other hand, the continuous evidence-based medical information has enabled rheumatologists to have a more comprehensive and depth understanding of the application of SLE traditional therapies, further improve the treatment strategy of SLE and put forward higher requirements for treatment goals. At the same time, advances in therapies have significantly improved survival rate of the patients, and the importance of long-term complications such as early-onset atherosclerosis and cardiovascular events has become increasingly apparent as a new challenge. In view of the hot issues of SLE clinical treatment, this paper introduces the research progress in recent years.
