Study of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

This research protocol will evaluate subjects with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and their relatives to study the pathogenesis and natural history of the disease and the mechanisms leading to enhanced organ damage. Patients will be evaluated by a history and physical examination and routine laboratory studies will be obtained as ...

Phase N/A

Role of Genetic Factors in the Development of Lung Disease

This study is designed to evaluate genetic mechanisms of lung disease by surveying polymorphic genes involved in respiratory function and examining gene expression in the lung cells of individuals with pulmonary disease (e.g., alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, sarcoidosis, history of infection, and genetic mutations ...

Phase N/A

Immune System Related Kidney Disease

Patients with known or suspected immunologically-mediated kidney diseases, including but not limited to, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, membranous nephropathy, lupus nephritis, and nephritis associated with other systemic or connective tissue disorders, will be evaluated at the Clinical Center. Patients who have immunologically-mediated diseases with potential for kidney disease will be evaluated ...

Phase N/A

Role of Altered CD40-Ligand Gene Transcription in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus is an often devastating autoimmune disease which affects 1 in 2,000 women in the United States. Recently, several research laboratories have reported that a protein, named CD40-ligand (CD154), is overexpressed by a subset of white blood cells, called lymphocytes, in patients with lupus. Expression of CD154 appears ...

Phase N/A

Study of Families With Twins or Siblings Discordant for Rheumatic Disorders

Most autoimmune diseases are thought to develop as a result of chronic immune activation and dysregulation after selected environmental exposures in genetically susceptible individuals. Current evidence suggests that the adult and juvenile forms of systemic rheumatic disorders -- defined here as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), systemic sclerosis ...

Phase N/A

Demodex Density Immune Response and Oxidative Stress in Rosacea Patients

Rosacea is a common and chronic inflammatory disease characterized by facial erythema, papule, pustule and telangiectasia. Ultraviolet, Demodex mite, oxidative stress and antioxidant system disorders are emphasized in increased inflammation seen in rosacea. The aim of our study was to evaluate the status of oxidative stress, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) and ...

Phase N/A

The Research Registry for Neonatal Lupus

Neonatal lupus is a disease seen in babies born to mothers who have antibodies to SSA/Ro and/or SSB/La proteins. The mother may have systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren's syndrome, or be otherwise healthy. Heart block and a characteristic skin rash are the primary manifestations of neonatal lupus. The Research Registry for ...

Phase N/A

Efferocytosis and Genomic Polymorphism in Autoimmune Diseases

Over the past few years, there were growing evidences that clearance of apoptotic cells by phagocytosis can result in powerful anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. The defective clearance of apoptotic cells has been linked to autoimmunity and persistent inflammatory diseases. Apoptotic cells are cleared in vivo rapidly. Clearance of apoptotic cells ...

Phase N/A

Cyclophosphamide in Lupus Nephritis

The autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) commonly affects the kidneys (lupus nephritis) and for some patients leads to a progressive loss of kidney function. In patients with aggressive lupus nephritis, treatment with the cytotoxic agent Cyclophosphamide (CP), and modulation of the immune system has proven effective in delaying progression ...

Phase N/A

A Study of the Natural Progression of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)

The purpose of this study is to obtain information on all patients being cared for by the ILD program in an effort to better understand the natural course of these diseases. Hopefully getting this information will lead to a better understanding of how these diseases behave with time. This in ...
