Determining Disease Activity Biomarkers in Individuals With Polyarteritis Nodosa


Longitudinal Protocol of Polyarteritis Nodosa




Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare immune system disorder that causes swelling and damage to small- and medium-sized blood vessels in the body. In order to properly treat this disease, it is critical that the level of disease activity can be determined over the course of the disease. The purpose of this study is to determine new biological markers, or biomarkers, that may be used to assess the severity of disease in people with PAN.
