The OMERACT Vasculitis Working Group seeks to develop validated outcome measures for use in trials for large-vessel vasculitis (LVV).
An international Delphi exercise conducted among investigators identified items considered important to measure active disease. In parallel, qualitative research with patients was conducted, including interviews and focus groups.
Next steps prioritized by the group for LVV include i) defining disease states (remission, flare, and patient-acceptable symptom state); and ii) selection of patient reported outcome tools.
The ultimate goal is to develop an OMERACT-endorsed Core Set of outcome measures for use in clinical trials of LVV.
