AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Criteria for Environmental Associated Autoimmune Diseases

Goal: Survey patients with autoimmune diseases for information on occupational and other life style exposures to factors associated with autoimmunity (smoking, silica dust, solvents, etc). Build data bases containing clinical parameters, blood tests, and exposure data to help identify putative diagnostic criteria. Compare with patients having idiopathic autoimmunity (i.e. lacking known risk exposures)
