Answer

Other measures of disease activity in Takayasu arteritis include the Birmingham Vasculitis Activity Score (BVAS), Disease Extent Index for Takayasu's Arteritis (DEI.Tak), and Indian Takayasu's Arteritis Score (ITAS). The ITAS seems to have good correlation; however, none of those scores has been validated. [37, 38]
