For that reason the treatment should be tailored to treat GPA manifestations and at the same time minimizing long-term toxicities.

Joint Bone Spine, 68pp. On the other hand T cells are considered the crucial and key players in GPA disease pathogenesis and this in turn would explain the beneficial use of MMF in both induction and maintenance of remission in GPA, as documented by Hu et al.

Initial laboratory investigations showed elevated markers of inflammation ESR 1st hour and CRP levels, normal liver function tests grqnulomatosis normal serum creatinine levels and further investigations confirmed the presence grsnulomatosis c-ANCA associated GPA.

Rituximab como terapia de mantenimiento en las vasculitis In this report we present two cases with established diagnosis of GPA where we used corticosteroid and MMF for both induction and maintenance of remission with no relapse during one year of follow-up.
