Testing and reporting antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) in treated vasculitis and non-vasculitic disease.

Testing for antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) is performed to diagnose or exclude small vessel vasculitis, and, in treated patients, to monitor disease activity. However testing is also und...

The treatment outcomes of rituximab for intractable otitis media with ANCA-associated vasculitis.

To investigate treatment outcomes, hearing outcomes, and adverse effects of rituximab (RTX) for intractable otitis media with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (OMAAV).

Propylthiouracil-induced anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis mimicking Kawasaki disease.

Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) is rare in children and is characterised as necrotising vasculitis predominantly affecting small and medium-sized vessels. Propy...

Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies and their clinical significance.

Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) are a group of autoantibodies that cause systemic vascular inflammation by binding to target antigens of neutrophils. These autoantibodies can be found in...

Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies in Chinese patients with tuberculosis.

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...

Automated Reading of Anti-neutrophil Cytoplasmic Autoantibodies, Indispensable Markers of Vasculitis

Neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ANCA) are essential serum markers in the diagnosis of vasculitis. Indirect immunofluorescence with microscope reading by two readers is the reference...

Comparison of ANCA and Anti-GBM Auto-antibodies Removal Kinetics Between Plasma Exchanges and Immunoadsorption in Patients With ANCA-associated Vasculitis or Anti-GBM Disease

Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), directed against myeloperoxidase (MPO) and against proteinase 3 (PR3), have a pathogenic role during ANCA (AAV) vasculitis. Glomerular baseme...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
