Revised Guidelines for Treatment of Adults with ANCA Associated Vasculitis.(2014 Revision)
After almost two years of careful consideration by a multidisciplinary panel of leading experts in the diagnosis and treatment of vasculitis, the British Society of Rheumatologists has published new guidelines to replace those drawn up in 2006. They reflect recent advances in treatment of AAV. These guidelines for medical professionals are entirely evidence based. Each recommendation has been carefully evaluated on the strength of the most recent available published evidence.
