Utility of Optical Coherence Tomography Measurements as a Biomarker for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus with or without Neuropsychiatric Symptoms…

CONCLUSIONS: Our results are consistent with previous findings of increased frequency of abnormal brain scans in SLE and of temporal RNFL thinning found in multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. The results of this study suggest that OCT measurements of RNFL and macular thickness may be a useful biomarker of early retinal involvement and/or cognitive impairment in SLE.Disclosure: Dr. Liu has nothing to disclose. Dr. Bernard has received personal compensation for activities with Biogen Idec and Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corporation. Dr. Bernard has received research support from Biogen Idec. (Source: Neurology)
