Progranulin Protein Levels in Blood May Predict AAV Severity

Blood levels of progranulin — a protein involved in cell development, cell growth, and wound healing — may predict the severity of ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV), a new observational study suggests. According to researchers, serum progranulin, or the protein’s levels in the bloodstream, “could be used as a predictive marker for high activity of AAV.” The study, “Serum progranulin as a predictive marker for high activity of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis,” was published in the Journal…
