Can vaccinations prevent GCA in patients with compromised immune systems? In this slideshow, we highlight three of many studies on vasculitis due to be presented at ACR 2016 later this week.
Can vaccinations prevent GCA in patients with compromised immune systems? Does a urinalysis test detect renal relapse in patients? In this slideshow, we highlight three of many studies on advances in vasculitis research. The presentations are due to be presented at the American College of Rheumatology 2016 annual meeting Nov. 11-16 in Washington, D.C.
