|Official Title:||A Randomized Trial of Glucocorticoids in Patients With IgG4-Related Disease|
|Study Start Date :||December 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||January 2014|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||April 2014|
Experimental: Medium Dose
Patients are treated with prednisone or equivlent at doseage of 0.5-0.6 mg/kg/d (max 40mg daily) for 3 weeks, then tapering gradually to 15mg/d in 3 months.
Experimental: High Dose
Patients are treated with prednisone or equivlent at doseage of 0.8-1.0 mg/kg/d (max 60mg daily) for 3 weeks, then tapering gradually to 15mg/d in 3 months.
- Complete Response [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Complete Response(CR) is defined as resolution of clinical manifestations, biochemical tests (C-reactive Proteins and IgG or IgG4 levels), and imaging studies.
- Disease Response [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
Disease Response is measured by IgG4-RD Responder Index(IgG4-RD RI) and defined as:
- Improvement of > 2 points in the IgG4-RD RI over baseline
- No disease flares, as assessed by the IgG4-RD RI.
- Adverse Effect [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Treatment-related adverse effect, including glucocorticoid-induced diabetes mellitus and infections.
