All patients enrolled in the Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium's Contact Registry were invited via email to participate in this study. The Contract Registry includes people who self-identify as having one of 6 vasculitities: Wegener's Granulomatosis, Microscopic Polyangiitis, Churg-Strauss Syndrome, Polyarteritis Nodosum, Takayasu's Arteritis, and Giant Cell Arteritis. People voluntarily enroll in this Registry with the understanding that they will receive information about clinical studies for which they might be eligible. The introductory email included basic information about the study and all of the required elements for informed consent in a brief format. By clicking the link to the reproductive health questionnaire, participants gave their consent to be included in the study.
Choosing to participate in a study is an important personal decision. Talk with your doctor and family members or friends about deciding to join a study.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
All patients with vasculitis included in the VCRC Contact Registry were invited to participate. Data was included for all patients who provided a vasculitis diagnosis, estimated date of diagnosis, confirmed that the diagnosis was made by a rheumatologist, and reported having taken at least one appropriate anti-rheumatic medication. Other participants were excluded as the likelihood that they have a true vasculitis condition is low.
