Antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ANCA) have been described in sera of patients with several forms of systemic vasculitis, including Wegener's granulomatosis and microscopic polyarteritis. The two main targets of ANCA in vasculitis are proteinase 3 (PR3) and myeloperoxidase (MPO). ANCA are capable of activating neutrophils primed by tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in vitro, which may be relevant for the induction of the vascular inflammation observed in vivo. Recently, it has… CONTINUE READING
