Join Dr. Richard A. Watts, Consultant Rheumatologist with Nuffield Health Ipswich Hospital, United Kingdom, as he discusses recently released recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of GPA/Wegener’s granulomatosis, microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) and EGPA/Churg-Strauss.
On June 23, 2016, The Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, released the medical journal article: EULAR/ERA-EDTA recommendations on the management of ANCA-associated vasculitis.
This extensive article offers 15 recommendations intended for use by healthcare professionals, doctors in specialist training, medical students, pharmaceutical industries and drug regulatory organizations. The paper reassesses standard therapy, including the use of biological agents, the prognostic value of histopathology and management of long-term complications, integrating these into treatment algorithms.
Dr. Watts will review the medical journal article and discuss some of the updates recommended for diagnosis and patient care.
