About our aims and our website
Our aims are to help educate people with vasculitis about their illness, to raise general awareness and to improve diagnosis and treatment of vasculitis. We work on the philosophy that knowledge of their illness empowers patients to have control of the disease and its treatment.
The clinical information you will find here is derived from reliable medical sources.
We are particularly indebted to:
Dr Matt Morgan (Senior Lecturer in Renal Medicine) and to Professor Lorraine Harper (Professor of Nephrology) at Birmingham University Hospitals, UK.
Dr Marcos Martinez delPero - Dr Catherine Guly - Dr David Jayne - Professor Charles Pusey and Dr Richard Watts for additional medical information.
In addition some of the content is from the personal experiences of those with vasculitis.
So please explore this website fully and if you cannot find what you are looking for, contact us. We are always happy to learn how we can do better!
