Pediatric Rheumatology Research
The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at NYU Langone participates in the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) Registry to help develop a database for childhood rheumatic diseases such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis, dermatomyositis, and systemic lupus erythematosus. The registry illustrates the feasibility of using data-intensive registries for observational studies, comparative research, translational research, and clinical trials.
Division investigators have collaborated with CARRA in research pertaining to the development of consensus treatment protocols for dermatomyositis. The division has also collaborated in the assessment of skin disease in patients with lupus and dermatomyositis, as well as validating current skin scoring tools in pediatrics.
Future translational research projects include studies of type 1 interferon and toll-like receptor pathways in understanding differences in treatment response in inflammatory arthritis.
