      Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) is a group of life-threatening autoimmune diseases. The epidemiological data on AAV in China are limited. The aim of the present study is to investigate the frequency, geographical distribution, and ethnic distribution of AAV in hospitalized patients in China, and its association with environmental by: 5.

The epidemiology of the antineutrophil cytoplasm antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitides (AAV), comprising Wegener's granulomatosis, microscopic polyangiitis, and Churg-Strauss syndrome, poses considerable challenges to epidemiologists. These challenges include the difficulty of defining a case with a lack of clear distinction between the different disorders, case capture, and case ascertainment.

ANCA-Associated Vasculitides: Immunological and Clinical Aspects (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)Format: Hardcover. Antineutrophilic cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) associated vasculitides are a heterogeneous group of rare autoimmune conditions that causes an inflammation.

WEGENER'S GRANULOMATOSIS & ANCA-ASSOCIATED DISEASES: THE STORY CONTINUES The disease now designated as Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) was first described in by Heinz Klinger, who considered it to be a special form of polyarteritis nodosa. Klinger's friend, Price: $ This volume, written by well-known experts in the field, covers all aspects of Anti-Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody (ANCA) Associated Vasculitis (AAV).

The expression refers to a group of diseases, characterized by destruction and inflammation of small vessels.5/5(1). Contacts: Peter Heeringa Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody (ANCA)-associated small vessel vasculitides are rare, but life-threatening, systemic inflammatory diseases that affect small- to medium-sized blood vessels.

Patients suffering from this disease have circulating autoantibodies that are directed against enzymes present in the neutrophils: myeloperoxidase or proteinase 3. Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitides (AAV) are systemic autoimmune diseases characterized by necrotizing inflammation of small.

The Autoimmune Registry supports research for ANCA-associated vasculitis by collecting information about patients with this and other autoimmune diseases.

In vitrostudies have demonstrated that ANCA plays a role in the stimulation of cytokine-primed neutrophils, thereby inducing the degranulation of neutrophils, the release of oxygen free radicals and lytic enzymes which results in the lysis and disruption of endothelial cells Cited by: M.F.

ANCA, or anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody vasculitis, is a group of autoimmune diseases that are characterized by vascular inflammation.

There are four types of ANCA all four types, autoantibodies target white blood cells and trigger them to attach to.

The vasculitides are a heterogeneous group of conditions typified by their ability to cause vessel inflammation with or without necrosis.

They present with a wide variety of signs and symptoms and, if left untreated, carry a significant burden of mortality and morbidity.
