Pathogenetic and clinical aspects of ANCA-associated vasculitis

(2009) Chen, Min

ANCA-associated vasculitides constitute a group of primary vasculitides, including Wegener’s granulomatosis (WG), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA), Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) and renal-limited vasculitis (RLV). These diseases are characterized by necrotizing small-vessel vasculitis in association with autoantibodies directed against neutrophil cytoplasmic constituents, in particular proteinase 3 (PR3) and myeloperoxidase (MPO). Kidneys and lungs are the two most commonly affected organs [1].
In this thesis, pathogenic and clinical aspects of ANCA-associated vasculitis have been studied. In part I of the thesis, the role of the complement system in AAV is explored. In part II, clinical characteristics and biomarkers for relapse of AAV have been investigated....
