Very good: 90%: The French Vasculitis Study Group published findings of 2 large prospective trials (following affected patients over time into the future) in 2013 which involved 105 patients. Overall survival was 90% at 7 years regardless of baseline severity. Relapses were frequent (38%). Age at or above 65 years was the only factor associated with a higher risk of death during follow-up care.
