  • A Study to Evaluate Response Markers to Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis Rochester, MN

    Study objective: Define pharmacogenomics markers and clinical phenotype features associated with response to RA treatments. Using electronical medical records data and a blood draw with DNA for genotyping from prospectively recruited patients seen in rheumatology clinic (n=100), we will identify genomic markers and leading phenotype features of responders to routinely used anti-rheumatic medications at 3 and 6 months of treatment based on disease activity score with 28-joint count (DAS28), accounting for socioeconomic factors, comorbidities, RA characteristics and prior anti-rheumatic medication use. We hypothesize that: Patients responding to antirheumatic medication(s) and their combinations share similar phenotype and/or genomic markers.

  • A Study to Evaluate Inflammation of the Heart Muscle Tissue in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis Rochester, MN

    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients have a higher prevalence of subclinical atherosclerosis than the general population.

There is evidence that myocardial mechanics and left ventricular diastolic function are more abnormal in the RA population and these changes occur earlier than in the general population. Recently a study suggested that RA patient have abnormal myocardial inflammation during a disease flare and that this is improved with anti-inflammatory treatment. Our study is aimed at describing the prevalence of myocardial inflammation in patients during active RA disease flares and comparing ...
