Patient Registries and Tissue Bank

Patient registries in Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis form the foundation for the Division's tissue bank, collecting detailed clinical data longitudinally.  The  Division has developed a tissue bank for blood, synovial fluid, and synovial tissue from these patients. This tissue is used in basic science investigations of the pathogenesis of disease, as well as in translational research projects including biomarker studies.
