Last verified: February 2002
  Purpose

The purpose of this protocol is to continue to treat patients with Wegener's granulomatosis who have already entered the study, and to treat new patients. The investigators will attempt to correlate the clinical response with specific immunosuppressive effects of drug administration. The investigators are accumulating data on the optimal duration and side effects of therapy.
