Biomarkers in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases


About this study

The purpose of this study is to identify biomarkers in people with autoimmune or inflammatory disease and in healthy people. We will use these biomarkers to develop tests that will help us better understand the same biomarkers in the blood of people who have autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
