Treatment of Wegener's Granulomatosis With Cyclophosphamide

2014-08-27 03:59:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this protocol is to continue to treat patients with Wegener's granulomatosis who have already entered the study, and to treat new patients. The investigators will attempt to correlate the clinical response with specific immunosuppressive effects of drug administration. The investigators are accumulating data on the optimal duration and side effects of therapy.

Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies-associated vasculitis.

In antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies-associated vasculitis (AAV), the treatment of choice is either Rituximab or cyclophosphamide in combination with steroids. In less extended forms of AAV, howev...

Cryoglobulinemia is defined as the presence of cryoglobulins in the blood. Cryoglobulinemia is often observed in the course of many diseases (infection, hematological disorders, autoimmune disorders) ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.

Inflammation of blood vessels within the central nervous system. Primary vasculitis is usually caused by autoimmune or idiopathic factors, while secondary vasculitis is caused by existing disease process. Clinical manifestations are highly variable but include HEADACHE; SEIZURES; behavioral alterations; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; and BRAIN INFARCTION. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp856-61)

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.

Necrotizing VASCULITIS of small and medium size vessels, developing as a complication in RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS patients. It is characterized by peripheral vascular lesions, cutaneous ULCERS, peripheral GANGRENE, and MONONEURITIS MULTIPLEX.

Central nervous system vasculitis that is associated with SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS. Clinical manifestations may include DEMENTIA; SEIZURES; CRANIAL NERVE DISEASES; HEMIPARESIS; BLINDNESS; DYSPHASIA; and other neurological disorders.
