Variations in Candidate Gene Polymorphisms Associated with RA in African Americans

This is a genetic study of African Americans with RA. Dr. Jawaheer will test and map the genetic makeup of African Americans with rheumatoid arthritis to determine their susceptibility to the disease and how these genetic markers compare to other ethnic groups which have already been studied. This information will be highly relevant for disease prognosis and treatment and may help lower the burden of arthritis in this ethnic group in the long term.
