Determining Disease Activity Biomarkers in Individuals With Eosinophilic Granulomatosis With Polyangiitis (Churg-Strauss)

EGPA, also known as allergic granulomatosis angiitis, is a systemic vasculitis. EGPA is marked by three distinct symptoms: asthma; eosinophilia, evidenced by an excessive number of eosinophils in the blood and tissues; and vasculitis involving the skin, lungs, nerves, kidneys, and other organs. Nerve involvement may also occur in EGPA, ...

PAN, also known as systemic necrotic vasculitis, was the first recognized form of primary systemic vasculitis. PAN causes the inflammation of small- to medium-sized blood vessels, especially those supplying the nerves, skin, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, heart, eye, and genitals. Unlike another form of vasculitis called microscopic polyangiitis, PAN does not ...

Determining Disease Activity Biomarkers in Individuals With Takayasu's Arteritis

Takayasu's arteritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body, and its branches. Inflammation causes segments of the vessels to become narrowed, blocked, or even stretched, possibly resulting in aneurysms. The disease is very rare but most commonly occurs in young Asian ...

Should Non-Eosinophilic Asthmatic Subjects be Treated With Inhaled Corticosteroids?

The efficacy of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) in asthmatic subjects showing no sputum eosinophils is controversial. The broad aim of this study is to assess whether ICS alone or in combination with long-acting beta-2 agonists are an effective treatment in non-eosinophilic asthmatic subjects. Methods: The investigators will perform a randomized double-blind, ...

Use of MRI and PET for Assessing Disease Activity in Takayasu's Arteritis

Takayasu's arteritis is a rare inflammatory disease that affects the aorta and its branches. The disease is much more common in females than in males, and disease onset typically occurs between the ages of 15 and 30. People with this disease often experience general discomfort, fatigue, fever, night sweats, weight ...

Cardiac FDG PET Viability Registry

Heart failure from reduced left ventricular function is associated with significant morbidity and mortality and although there have been multiple trials involving medical and devices therapies that have shown improved survival, the overall mortality remains high. Therapeutic intervention studies involving transplantation and revascularization concluded that patients with viable myocardium can ...
