The purpose

The primary objectives of the study are as follows: To develop and optimize a renal functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) protocol consisting of Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DW-MRI), Blood-Oxygen- Level-Dependent MRI (BOLD-MRI), Arterial Spin Labeling MRI (ASL-MRI), Phase Contrast MRI (PC-MRI), and T1rho-MRI; To compare renal functional MRI cross-sectional readouts between normal healthy volunteers (NHV) and lupus nephritis (LN) participants. The secondary objectives of this study are as follows: Explore whether renal functional MRI techniques discriminate between renal inflammatory activity and damage in lupus nephritis (LN); To examine whether renal functional MRI measurements correlate with laboratory features of renal involvement and renal function in participants with lupus nephritis (LN).
Tris trial is registered with FDA with number: NCT01731054. The sponsor of the trial is Biogen and it is looking for 50 volunteers for the current phase.
