Vasculitis Centers and CSS (EGPA) Medical Experts

The CSSA encourages patients to seek out the best medical care available. Because CSS/EGPA is such a rare disease, finding expert care can be difficult. The following medical resources either have dedicated vasculitis centers focused on treating different forms of vasculitis, including EGPA (Churg-Strauss), or a strong research interest in vasculitis and/or eosinophilic disorders. In addition, the CSSA’s stellar Medical Advisory Board is comprised of world renown experts. Many of these experts are willing to consult with local physicians on difficult cases, as time permits. Some patients travel great distances for a complete work up at one of the vasculitis centers. The center then works with the patient’s local physician to co-ordinate care at home.

Some of the resources in this section are geared toward medical professionals.

Boston, MA

From the Mass General website:

Early Diagnosis, Multidisciplinary Care for Vasculitis Rheumatologists at the Massachusetts General Hospital Vasculitis Program have extensive experience recognizing how vasculitis can affect different organs and take a team approach to safely and effectively treating all forms of the disease, including Churg Strauss Syndrome.

Vasculitis causes inflammation in and damage to blood vessels, including arteries, veins and capillaries. As a result, it can affect virtually any organ in the body.

Fortunately, all forms of vasculitis are treatable. The key is to make a diagnosis before the disease has inflicted permanent organ damage. At the Mass General Vasculitis Program, we focus on diagnosing vasculitis early and then administering treatment safely and effectively.

Multidisciplinary expertise, a major strength at Mass General, is essential in caring for patients with multi-organ system disorders such as vasculitis. Our rheumatologists can coordinate clinical care with other world-class specialists throughout the hospital.

John Stone, MD, MPH, has directed the Vasculitis program since 2008 He has an international reputation for clinical and research expertise in vasculitis. He co-founded the John Hopkins Vasculitis Center in 1997 and directed the center from 2000 to 2006.

From the website:

National Jewish Health is known worldwide for treatment of patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune and related disorders, and for groundbreaking medical research. Founded in 1899 as a nonprofit hospital, National Jewish Health remains the only facility in the world dedicated exclusively to these disorders. For the past 15 consecutive years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked National Jewish Health the #1 respiratory hospital in the nation.

Why National Jewish Health?

Our specialists are on the cutting edge for new treatment. And through clinical research we are helping discover which medications might be best for patients with many diseases. We are also investigating new therapies which may be released in the future.

Our strength as a division is directly linked to the strengths of National Jewish Health, specifically with rheumatologic (also called autoimmune) lung disease. The Rheumatology Division works collaboratively with the Interstitial Lung Disease Program and the Pulmonary programs in general to provide an unparalleled resource for patients in the assessment and management of autoimmune lung disease. In essence, this is the backbone of the Autoimmune Lung Center. 

What do we do?

Rheumatology: We provide comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients with a broad range of musculoskeletal problems, including scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory myopathies and systemic vasculitis.

From the website:

International Leader in Treating Eosinophilic Disorders Our specialists within the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders (CCED) understand the ups and downs of living with eosinophilic disorders, which are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. For families dealing with eosinophilic disorders, the road to diagnosis can be frustrating and challenging since symptoms masquerade as a number of conditions. But once diagnosed, symptoms of these disorders can be effectively managed in many cases.

We are international leaders in caring for patients with eosinophilic conditions and researching the cure. Our multidisciplinary team has extensive experience with these rare disorders. We have intense interest in eosinophilic disorders, their effects on health, and their impact on individuals and families. The CCED was the first center established in the Unites States to bring together experts in various disciplines to evaluate, treat and study these chronic medical problems in children and adults. Our multidisciplinary structure, composed of professionals in various divisions throughout Cincinnati Children’s, is founded in collaboration. These collaborations allow us to draw upon the expertise of specialists while permitting a unified plan of care tailored to the needs of the patient and family.

CanVasc

CanVasc is the Canadian network for research on vasculitides. It was created in November 2011 by Drs. Pagnoux, Carette and Khalidi. First task was to identify other referal medical centers and physicians across Canada with expertise in vasculitis and willing to be part of this new research group. Among its several other aims, important ones are to help conducting studies on vasculitis, provide support and educational material on vasculitides for physicians and trainees and, eventually, optimize the therapeutic management of patients with these rare diseases in order to further improve their outcomes. 

CLICK HERE for more information on CanVasc.

The proposed CanVasc objectives are to: 

  1. organize a dedicated health and research network with identification of referral (multidisciplinary) centers across Canada for patients with vasculitis. Establishment and regular updates of Guidelines and recommendations for the diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients is part of this objective.
  2. initiate, conduct, and promote studies (from CanVasc, VCRC or other vasculitis research groups) on vasculitides across Canada (epidemiological, observational, fundamental and, ultimately, therapeutic studies), using an efficient, established and rapidly mobilisable network.
  3. develop educational and awareness programs for health care providers (training sessions, fellowship, annual meeting…).
  4. stand as the Canadian referral group to identify needs in vasculitis and consider new drug approvals for vasculitis in Canada (advisory group).

In November 2004, Professor Guillevin's Department of Internal Medicine was officially designated a National Reference Center for Necrotizing Vasculitides and Systemic Sclerosis. The exact title was modified in 2007 to: Referral Center Group I, Rare Systemic Diseases and Autoimmune Diseases, Necrotizing Vasculitides and Systemic Sclerosis.

This designation confers a role in the coordination of the network for managing patients with these diseases in France, in cooperation with the other centers comprising Group I. The French Vasculitis Study Group has conducted excellent CSS research which has greatly advanced an understanding of this rare disease. referral http://www.vascularites.com/
