Comparison of Complement Factors and Genetic Polymorphisms of AMD Between Patients With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) With and Without Retinal "Pseudo-drusen-like" Deposits: Case-control Study (PL-AMD)

Brief description of study

The rationale of this research is to determine if patients with lupus and presenting retinal "pseudo-drusen-like" deposits have genetic and complement-related similarities with AMD patients.

Based on the results obtained, this study could lead to future research that could better target the treatment of patients with lupus or patients with AMD (Age related Macular Degeneration).

The primary objective is to check if patients with lupus, treated or not with antimalarial drugs, with "pseudo-drusen-like" deposits have a different complement profile (functional exploration of complement, complement factors, genetic complement polymorphisms involved in AMD) compared to patients without "pseudo-drusen-like" deposits.
