Can help more often: Chemotherapy can help treat lupus but certain drugs may provoke lupus. Most of the drug induced lupus cases are not wild lupus as these are actually a different type of lupus we call "drug induced lupus".Although unusual certain chemotherapeutic agents have a potential to cause drug induced lupus
