Herein, we report a case of otitis media caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), presenting as falsely positive for proteinase 3 (PR3)-antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA...
Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCAs) are autoantibodies specific for antigens located in the cytoplasmic granules of neutrophils and lysosomes of monocytes. ANCAs are associated with a spectr...
To investigate treatment outcomes, hearing outcomes, and adverse effects of rituximab (RTX) for intractable otitis media with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (OMAAV).
Pulmonary fibrosis is observed in a substantial number of patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV), 15% in a recent German series, and may be more frequent in Asian populations. ANCA are usually...
Based on reports, infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis is believed to induce the development of antibodies that are considered to be biological indicators for the diagnosis of some other diseases...
The study aims at defining the role of soluble CD95 Ligand in the physiopathology of a rare group of inflammatory diseases: ANCA associated vasculitis. Soluble CD95 Ligand might have a pro...
Vasculitis denotes affection of small to medium sized vessels by polyangitis. Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) are immunoglobulin G (IgG) autoantibodies directed against consti...
The aim of the trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of the orally-administered, selective complement C5a receptor inhibitor CCX168 (avacopan) in inducing and sustaining remission in ...
This prospective randomized trial aims to evaluate the feasibility, risk and benefit of the discontinuation of immunosuppressive maintenance treatments in AAV (Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic A...
The purpose of this study is to determine the best management strategy to maintain remission in patients with ANCA vasculitis who have been treated with rituximab induced B cell depletion ...
Autoantibodies directed against cytoplasmic constituents of POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES and/or MONOCYTES. They are used as specific markers for WEGENER GRANULOMATOSIS and other diseases, though their pathophysiological role is not clear. ANCA are routinely detected by indirect immunofluorescence with three different patterns: c-ANCA (cytoplasmic), p-ANCA (perinuclear), and atypical ANCA.
Group of systemic vasculitis with a strong association with ANCA. The disorders are characterized by necrotizing inflammation of small and medium size vessels, with little or no immune-complex deposits in vessel walls.
A primary systemic vasculitis of small- and some medium-sized vessels. It is characterized by a tropism for kidneys and lungs, positive association with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), and a paucity of immunoglobulin deposits in vessel walls.
A multisystemic disease of a complex genetic background. It is characterized by inflammation of the blood vessels (VASCULITIS) leading to damage in any number of organs. The common features include granulomatous inflammation of the RESPIRATORY TRACT and KIDNEYS. Most patients have measurable autoantibodies (ANTINEUTROPHIL CYTOPLASMIC ANTIBODIES) against MYELOBLASTIN.

The common features include granulomatous inflammation of the RESPIRATORY TRACT and kidneys. Most patients have measurable autoantibodies (ANTINEUTROPHIL CYTOPLASMIC ANTIBODIES) against neutrophil proteinase-3 (WEGENER AUTOANTIGEN).
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
