Animal models of vasculitides.


The vasculitides are a group of diseases in which the common denominator is the immune attack to components of the vascular wall. Vasculitides may attack large vessels like the aorta, medium-sized vessels like the coronary arteries or small vessels like the glomeruli. We review in this paper the animal models that have been developed to study these diseases.
