The interplay between neutrophils and endothelial cells allows ANCA to become pathogenic and results in uncontrolled inflammation in the vessel wall. This review presents an overall view on neutrophil-endothelial interaction during inflammation with a focus on ANCA-associated vasculitis, and summarizes the effector mechanisms which cause vascular damage in AAV. In addition, potential elements for disease intervention based on this process are discussed.
