Conquering Diseases

Role Of Scavenger Receptors In Inflammation And Autoimmunity

Description

We are collecting blood samples from healthy controls and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) patient samples to learn more about potential molecules that are responsible for the development of Lupus.

Overview

Participants will be asked to provide a blood sample at a single visit. Samples will be used the same day of the collection and may be stored for future use. In addition some data will be collected.

What we're hoping for

This study is trying to identify potential molecules that are responsible for the development of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or Lupus) that cause inflammation in many body tissues.
