Vasculitis and diagnosis to control the effect of inflammation
Journal of vasculitis has announced almost 50 percent discount on article processing charge to commemorate its Anniversary. On behalf of the Journal of vasculitis, the editor of journal of vasculitis is overwhelmed by the response and eagerness of the academic and research contributors to publish with the journal and take part in the year-long celebrations.
Vasculitis: The inflammation of blood vessels is called as vasculitis. The vascular system refers to the collection of all blood vessels in the body. Vasculitis is the term used for a group of diseases characterized by the inflammation of and damage to the blood vessels or the blood vessel walls. Vasculitis is a group of uncommon diseases, which result in inflammation of the blood vessels. Vasculitis is also known as angiitis and arteritis.
General signs and symptoms of vasculitis include:
- Weight loss
- General aches and pains
- Night sweats
- Nerve problems, such as numbness or weakness
Diagnosis : Tests and procedures might include:
Blood tests: These tests look for signs of inflammation, such as a high level of C-reactive protein. A complete blood cell count can tell whether you have enough red blood cells. Blood tests that look for certain antibodies — such as the anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies test — can help diagnose vasculitis.
Urine tests: These tests may reveal whether your urine contains red blood cells or has too much protein, which can signal a medical problem.
Imaging tests: Noninvasive imaging techniques can help determine what blood vessels and organs are affected. They can also help the doctor monitor whether you are responding to treatment. Imaging tests for vasculitis include X-rays, ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET).
X-rays of your blood vessels (angiography): During this procedure, a flexible catheter, resembling a thin straw, is inserted into a large artery or vein. A special dye (contrast medium) is then injected into the catheter, and X-rays are taken as the dye fills the artery or vein. The outlines of your blood vessels are visible on the resulting X-rays.
Biopsy: This is a surgical procedure in which your doctor removes a small sample of tissue from the affected area of your body. Your doctor then examines this tissue for signs of vasculitis.
Very soon we will publish the 6th volume issue 1 in our journal of vasculitis .The journal invites different types of articles including original research article, review articles, short note communications, case reports, Editorials, letters to the Editors and expert opinions & commentaries from different regions for publication.
Treatments are generally directed toward stopping the inflammation and suppressing the immune system. Submit manuscript online or through mail as an attachment at email@example.com
