I desperately need to find a specialist who was successful in stopping the progressive kidney deterioration of a patient who had a flare-up caused by SLE-MCTD. I am in end-stage-renal-failure and I have had Methyl Prednisolone-Infusions followed by Rituximab-Infusions but this treatment was not successful in stopping the deterioration of my kidneys. I have had no other treatment. My kidney function now is 9-10% and the typical symptoms of uremia have not shown themselves. Is there a patient who has been treated successfully and could they please contact me urgently. Thank you. Please write me.
