Tocilizumab for the treatment of patients with refractory takayasu arteritis. Recent studies have shown that US can provide important information about the vessel wall in pre-stenotic stages, when edema causes the vessel wall to appear hypoechoic, in contrast with its hyperechoic look in basal, non-inflammatory stages Precordial pain, dyspnea, palpitations, and murmurs may reflect cardiac involvement.


Finally, a recent multicenter, controlled trial involving 34 patients with TA failed to demonstrate the efficacy of abatacept CTLA4-Ig in maintaining relapse-free survival over placebo.
