In brief: Vasculitis screen

The panca measures the presence of the mpo antibody and is part of screening tests for vasculitis.
However, the panca is somewhat nonspecific and can be positive in diseases unrelated to vasculitis. These tests need to be interpreted in the context of the clinical findings.
