    Rapid progress in the fields of giant cell arteritis and polymyalgia rheumatica has resulted in the introduction of imaging techniques into routine clinical practice and in promising reports on the efficacy of biologic agents for treatment. Further research should further advance our understanding of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, imaging and treatment of these diseases.

    Autoantibodies are known to regulate the function of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), but the involvement of such functional autoantibodies in autoimmune disorders is not fully understood. In this Review, the author discuss evidence showing agonistic and antagonistic effects of anti-GPCR functional autoantibodies in the pathogenesis of different rheumatic diseases.
