The following is an announcement from SAA about a third party study. SAA is not affiliated with this study, the researchers, or the institution
This study will evaluate the natural history of spondyloarthritis (SpA) in children and adults. Researchers will study early signs and symptoms of axial spondyloarthritis to better understand the cause and progression of this disease, and in addition, compare genetic data of patients with that of healthy family members’ to help identify the genes involved in SpA, and their functions.
Successful completion of these combined analyses will allow rheumatologists to better recognize early SpA with axial involvement, particularly in children, and improve our understanding of disease cause, mechanisms involved, and progression.
Participants enrolled in this study will undergo physical examination, imaging studies, have family history taken, as well as have laboratory evaluations completed. Participants may also be evaluated for SpA related symptoms outside the joints and spine, as needed.
