Autoimmune Diseases

Biomarkers enable physicians to choose treatments that will work in a specific patient.  In addition there is a quest to use biomarkers to identify patients who will have an adverse reaction to a treatment.  This is often referred to as “personalized medicine.”  

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the small joints in your hands and feet. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity.

Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the skin and connective tissue tightens and hardens. Median survival from diagnosis is approximately 11 years. Patients experience a deteriorating quality of life and typically die from complications of the disease.   There is no cure or effective treatment for the disease.
