Pediatric Vasculitis Initiative (PedVas)
The aim of this study is to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of children with vasculitis. As these already rare diseases occur even less frequently in children, the knowledge and experience of several doctors will be brought together. The aim is to achieve the best possible treatment with the best possible results. It is precisely because some drugs used for therapy have toxic effects that it is easier to find a suitable, effective treatment option by comparing patients with similar values. A further advantage of children as a patient group is that their clinical picture is less frequently influenced by additional diseases such as age, alcohol, smoking, etc. and they are therefore better suited for research into the underlying biology of vasculitis.
