Autoantibodies directed against neutrophil cytoplasmic antigens (ANCA) are valuable in the diagnosis of primary systemic vasculitis, and immunofluorescence studies suggest that changes in ANCA concentration reflect changes in disease activity. We used enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays to examine retrospectively the relationship between ANCA concentration and disease activity in 56 patients with systemic vasculitis. We included patients with Wegener's granulomatosis, microscopic polyangiitis… CONTINUE READING
