Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Systemic vasculitis is a group of heterogeneous, disabling disorders. Great interest has recently arisen in pathophysiology, clinical phenotypes and therapy of large- and small-vessel vasculitis. The general work hypothesis has been to promote research focused on disease-related pathogenetic pathways, with the ultimate goal of identifying novel diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers, thus leading towards more effective targeted treatments. Following the previous annual reviews of this series, we will hereby provide a critical digest of the recent literature on smalland large-vessel systemic vasculitis, with a specific focus on novel possible disease-related biomarkers and their impact on current and future therapies.
