Are You Living With Vasculitis and Would Like to Take Part in Research?

Do you have one of these types of non-ANCA associated vasculitides?

  • Giant cell arteritis
  • Takayasu’s arteritis
  • Polyarteritis nodosa
  • Cerebral vasculitis
  • Cogan’s syndrome
  • Relapsing polychondritis
  • IgA vasculitis (Henoch-Schönlein Purpura)
  • Non-infective cryoglobulinaemic vasculitis

Researchers are seeking adults and children aged five years and older to participate in a two-year clinical trial called BIOVAS.

If you experience a relapse you may be eligible to participate.

The research will use three trial drugs (Infliximab, Rituximab and Tocilizumab) and a placebo.

For further information please discuss the BIOVAS trial with your doctor, or call Viola Ricci (Research Nurse) on 01223 349350
