Catching up Giant cell arteritisーACR

During the Meeting I thought about Giant cell arteritis.
I preffered to have vasculitis sessions.

Giant cell arteritis affects older adults, and treated by steroids, 60mg/day.
because of side effects of Steroids, vasculitis, and old aged people,recurrences of the diseases, it causes terrible results.

Here comes Tocilizmab,we can expect steroid sparing effects.

Kawata @ jk-clinic,
"Among the 30 patients, we have 3 patients who could not treated by PSL 15mg/day. Should they take temporal artery biopsy?"
Prof. Matteson @ mayo clinic
"you gotta Echo, PET-CT or MRAngiography before biopsy."
thanks,

UBER

I used UBER for going banks and shopping.

First, put on the destination. Numberplate and drivers were shown in smartphone. One car stopped and confirmed each other,
“Are you Junko?”
I moved from Down town to La Jolla, bank, telephone company, and shopping center......
This is trump era and people are very incompatible.
Rate is 1 star.
