Brief Summary in Scientific Language

The study is an extension of a prospective patient-centered epidemiologic cohort-study on the course of disease of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus that we are conducting since 2001. It is non-interventional, not-experimental, and is performed as an annual postal pseudonymized survey using partly variable patient questionnaires.
Participants of the former study (LuLa 2001-2010) are being included as well as new entrants with disease duration of less than two years.
Patient-centered documentation has the advantage that the effects of the disease are gathered directly from the patient. In the past years such patient- reported data has continuously gained importance for clinical decision making as well as cost-bearers.

Exemplary central questions are:
- What are the therapeutic changes in the past 15 years of treating SLE and what importance does it have on disease activity, damage and comorbidities?
Which factors contribute to the burden of illness?
What is the importance of physical, mental and therapeutic aspects?
What significance has disease activity and damage?
Are there implications for health care costs?

Primary Outcome

Quality of life (physical and mental) is surveyed annually by a validated questionnaire. Descriptive, univariable and multivariable analysis are being conducted for evaluation.

start of 1:1-Block secondary endpoint

Secondary Outcome

Treatment, disease activity, concomitant diseases, physical functioning, pain and disease flares are surveyed using appropriate questionnaires and analyzed annually. Other secondary endpoints are analyzed sporadic due to annually changing focus topics in the survey (e.g. costs, damage, depression, hospitalizations, physical activity, fatigue, sleep disorders, work productivity, vaccination status). Descriptive, univariable and multivariable analysis are being conducted.
