Differences between myeloperoxidase-specific and -nonspecific P-ANCA-associated renal disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) are classified into perinuclear (P)-ANCA and cytoplasmic-ANCA by an indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) test with ethanol-fixed neutrophils. Circulating P-ANCA with specificity for myeloperoxidase (MPO) are frequently found in patients with pauci-immune necrotizing glomerulonephritis. P-ANCA without a… (More)
