AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Can we better determine which Sjögren's mothers are at risk of having babies with fetal heart block and prevent its occurrence?

It is known that the autoantibody SSA can lead to heart block in the fetuses of mothers with Sjögren's and lupus. However, not everyone who is positive for SSA has a fetus with heart block. This study would focus on fine-tuning the risk factors for fetal heart-block in to improve the odds of preventing its occurrence
