Characteristics and Disease Progression of Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system produces antibodies against the body's healthy cells and tissues. These antibodies, called autoantibodies, contribute to the inflammation of various parts of the body and can cause damage to organs and tissues. Mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) is ...

Phase N/A

PET MRI Study in Patients With Cardiac Sarcoidosis

Myocarditis or inflammatory cardiomyopathy refers to inflammation of the myocardium. Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology, which can result in myocardial inflammation. Approximately 5% of patients with sarcoidosis have clinically apparent cardiac involvement, yet autopsy series indicate that cardiac involvement is present in up to 25% of ...

Phase N/A

Analysis of B Cells From Autoimmune Individuals

This observational study aims at finding out if individual with autoimmunity exhibit increased numbers of B cells that express two types (instead of one type) of antibodies, and if B cells of individuals genetically susceptible to autoimmunity display defects in the biological process of tolerance, which removes B cells that ...

Phase N/A

Epigenetic Regulation of Altered T-cell Immunity in Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis is a multi-system granulomatous disorder that is triggered and influenced by gene-environment interactions. Although sarcoidosis predominantly affects the lungs in most cases, the clinical disease course is highly variable and any organ can be affected leading to end organ damage despite currently available therapeutics that unfortunately also have numerous ...

Phase N/A

Searching for Diagnostic/Prognostic Biomarkers in SLE With Renal Involvement by Proteomic Techniques

BACKGROUND AND STATUS QUO IN THE FIELD Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a systemic, chronic autoimmune disease, affecting connective tissue, and is considered a rare disease by the Spanish Foundation for Rare Diseases (FEDER). Its clinical manifestations are varied, being able to affect most types of tissue and organs especially ...

Phase N/A

Proliferative Lupus Nephritis Treatment With Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine

All patients will fulfill the diagnostic criteria of SLE. The diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus is based on clinical and laboratory criteria. The criteria set developed by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and diagnosed wih lupus nephritis class III and IV . Inclusion Criteria: Children and adolescents who fulfill ...

Phase N/A

Validation of the Analysis Methodology Behind the Use of Quantitative 18F-FDG PET/CT to Assess Lung Inflammation

Inflammation plays an important role in a myriad of human diseases. Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) are characterised by widespread inflammation and represent a major burden to the health sector. Imaging offers a method of assessing lung inflammation which is non-invasive and may help facilitate the development of new therapeutic drugs. ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Novel Lung Function Parameters in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)

Current diagnostic tools used in interstitial lung disease (ILD) do not meet the challenges set by the complex pathophysiology of this heterogenous group. The investigators therefore aimed to evaluate novel or not widely used diagnostic approaches for the detection and therapeutic monitoring of patients with various ILDs.

Phase N/A

Genetic Basis of Rosacea

Rosacea is a common disease characterized by inflammation and vascular abnormalities of the facial skin and ocular surface. The exact pathogenesis of papulopustular rosacea is not well understood and current methods to treat this disease are often unsatisfactory. The purpose of this study is to develop gene expression profiles of ...

Phase N/A

Pulmonary Hypertension Screening for Rheumatology Patients (SOPHIE)

Objectives To detect pulmonary hypertension amongst patients with connective tissue diseases through systematic screening To understand the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in Chinese patients with connective tissue diseases Study design: The study is a territory-wide pulmonary hypertension screening project. Patients fulfilling the inclusion and exclusion criteria will undergo screen echocardiography ...
