OBJECTIVE

To determine whether prolactin levels are independently associated with disease damage in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients. Methods: these cross-sectional analyses were conducted in SLE patient members of the Almenara Lupus Cohort who were seen between January 2012 and June 2013. Disease damage was ascertained with the System Lupus International Collaborating Clinics/American College of Rheumatology (SLICC/ACR) damage index (SDI). Prolactin was measured in ng/ml. The association between prolactin levels and the SDI (total and its domains) was evaluated using Spearman’s correlation. Subsequently, adjusted Poisson regression models were performed to evaluate these associations.
