    Lupus Systemic Lupus Erythematosus or SLE Systemic lupus erythematosus is a condition characterized by chronic inflammation of body tissues caused by autoimmune disease. Lupus can cause disease of the skin, heart, lungs, kidneys, joints, and nervous system. When only the skin is involved, the condition is called discoid lupus. MECHANISM OF ACTION. Plaquenil increases the pH of lysosomes and impairs complement-dependent antigen-antibody reactions. It also inhibits the chemotaxis of eosinophils and locomotion of neutrophils. SUMMARY OF EVIDENCE in development Ponticelli C et al. 2017 “Hydroxychloroquine in systemic lupus erythematosus SLE” Expert Opin Drug Saf. Mechanism Hydroxychloroquine is thought to improve symptoms of systemic diseases by preventing inflammation. For example, to treat both rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus SLE, it has been hypothesized that the drug suppresses T-lymphocytes by increasing the pH inside lysosomes, which disables leukocyte chemotaxis. This prevents leukocytes from being activated which decrease the inflammation seen in many systemic diseases.
