Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the remission rate after 9 months of therapy with intravenous immunoglobulins,
  • in relapsing patients with ANCA+ vasculitides (Microscopic Polyangiitis, Wegener’s granulomatosis and Churg-Strauss syndrome)
  • during 6 months, after relapse

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety, i.e. side-effects classified according to the WHO guidelines

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: March 2001
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2006
Detailed Description:

The aim of this study will assess the effects of intravenous immunoglobulin in ANCA+ vasculitides (Microscopic Polyangiitis, Wegener’s granulomatosis and Churg-Strauss syndrome) who relapse under corticosteroid and immunosuppressant therapies or after one year post treatment.
