Further study details as provided by Peking Union Medical College Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Completely Remission [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    BVAS/WG of 0 and successful completion of the prednisone taper at 6 months.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease flare [ Time Frame: during the period of observation(30months) ]

    Disease flare

    1. an increase in the BVAS/WG of 1 point or more.
    2. Patients were classified as having early treatment failure if at 1 month their BVAS/WG had not decreased by at least 1 point or a new manifestation of disease had emerged.

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse events [ Time Frame: during the period of observation (30months) ]
    1. deaths (from all causes)
    2. malignant conditions
    3. grade 2 or higher leukopenia or thrombocytopenia
    4. grade 3 or higher infections
    5. drug induced cystitis
    6. venous thromboembolic events
    7. stroke
    8. hospitalizations

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Adults who diagosed ANCA-vasculitis

Patients with Wegener's granulomatosis or microscopic polyangiitis were eligible to participate in the study if they had

  1. Positive serum assays for proteinase 3-ANCA or myeloperoxidase-ANCA
  2. manifestations of severe disease,11 and a Birmingham Vasculitis Activity Score for Wegener's Granulomatosis (BVAS/WG) of 3 or more (scores range from 0 to 63, with higher scores indicating more active disease)

Detailed Description:

Presentation of patient with suspected vasculitis

  1. Established diagnosis Clinical findings Laboratory workup Tissue biopsy Angiogram where appropriate
  2. Evaluating respiratory system Chest HRCT Pulmonary function test Bronchoscopy exam(BALF, TBB) Lung biopsy(needle biopsy, VAST)
  3. screening underlying damage to other system Paranasal sinus, vision & audition Nervous system Kidney Gastrointestinal tract Heart & vessel Skin Hematology Muscle, bone & joint
  4. Treatment
  5. Prognosis


  1. Study visits occurred at baseline; at weeks 4; and at 2, 4, 6,12,18,24,30 months.
  2. Disease activity was measured on the basis of the BVAS/WG and the physician's global assessment.
  3. Damage related to disease or treatment was scored according to the Vasculitis Damage Index (scores for this index range from 0 to 64, with higher scores in- dicating more severe damage).
  4. Health related quality of life was scored with the use of the Med- ical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36).Scores on this scale range from 0 to 100, with higher scores indicating better health.
  5. Serial serum samples were tested for proteinase 3-ANCA and myeloperoxidase-ANCA by means of a direct enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
