Statistics from Altmetric.com

We thank Doria et al1 for their critical appraisal of our recent publication ‘Remission in systemic lupus erythematosus: durable remission is rare’.2

We agree that there are multiple ways to study the durability of remission including the longest period, or, preferably the per cent time in remission since diagnosis.

We left this (and the correlation with outcome parameters) for future work.
