Patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA, Wegener's) who qualify for the TAPIR trial must meet all criteria found here.
Then you are currently not eligible to join the TAPIR trial. To become eligible for the TAPIR trial, you must already be on a prednisone dose between 5 and 20 mg per day.
Talk to your doctor. Your doctor will determine if it is appropriate for you to taper your prednisone dose into the eligible range (more than 5 mg and less than 20 mg)
