Personalized Medicine through Integration of Immune Phenotypes in Autoimmune Skin Disease
Enrollment status: Contact us for status
We aim to expand our ability to pick the right treatments for patients with diseases such as lupus and psoriasis. To do this, we need to develop a better understanding of how these diseases behave and respond to treatments over time. Through the Taubman Medical Research Institute, we have been granted funds to follow a cohort of patients to better understand the specific skin and immune system abnormalities that cause diseases like lupus or psoriasis. Our study is Personalized Medicine through Integration of Immune Phenotypes in Autoimmune Skin Diseases. We would like you to consider joining our cohort. This will mean that you will have a research visit after most of your regularly scheduled clinic visits during which we will collect information such as pain and fatigue levels, medication changes, and disease activity. We will also ask for a blood sample at every visit and occasionally a skin biopsy to study the skin responses (but not at every visit). We will use this information to map out your immune responses and how the medications change them in relation to your clinical improvement. You will be compensated for your time for each research visit.
