Glucocorticoid treatment and damage in the anti-neutrophil cytoplasm antibody-associated vasculitides: long-term data from the European Vasculitis Study Group trials.
OBJECTIVE: Granulomatosis with polyangiitis and microscopic polyangiitis are ANCA-associated vasculitides (AAVs). The Vasculitis Damage Index (VDI) quantifies damage. This study aims to determine the factors associated with long-term damage in the AAVs. METHODS: Data from 535 patients from four European Vasculitis Study Group trials were studied. A long-term follow-up (LTFU) questionnaire at 7 years post-diagnosis was completed. The associations between baseline (age, creatinine and BVAS scor...Expand abstract
